Amazing Star Trek Technologies We Don’t Want in Real Life
People have created a lot of things with the help of technology, and there are a lot of article online that celebrate the wonders of Trek tech but may not be good in real life. While smartphones, portable data tablets, holodecks, and universal translators are amazing devices, there are devices which are not incredible. Let’s try to discuss the great Star Trek technologies but are not suitable and good to use in real life. Let us focus on food replicators, synthehol, and transporters.
1. The Amazing Food Replicators. Will you rely on your food to an android cook? How will a food replicator taste the food? For people who don’t really cook, it may be a good idea for them to have a food replicator, but definitely not for mothers and health and fitness enthusiasts. While the personalities in the Star Trek universe greatly depend on android cooks, the real world still needs human touch and human taste buds. While the Federation may know that taste of a tasty wheat, they are a giant bureaucratic organization, cutting corners, and the food machines in star Trek utilize the least number of available resources. The world will be so sad not to ever taste a gourmet meal gain, so we must still be grateful because many people are still interested in learning culinary and serve healthy and hearty meals.
2. Synthehol. While it is good to have an unlimited source of alcohol, we cannot discount the fact that the world has high morbidity and mortality rates because of alcoholism and drunk driving. It does not make any sense having a substance that can degrade the judgment of your crew on a star ship. Despite it is illegal, some Romulan wine still shows up at times. There is no need to research the top 10 wine coolers on the star system, and nobody would care if the stuff is real or not. The conflict is that people drink alcohol not just for the taste but also the effects.
3. Travel anywhere and anytime with transporters. Surely, you will save time and effort traveling a long distance because transporter can help you arrive at your destination within seconds. Are you willing to be like one of the crew members of Science Officer Commander Sonak who unluckily slated to beam aboard? Despite of cloud technologies, data loss is still a real thing in the digital world. We admit it, the world is scary, so be careful what you wish for.
