A long time ago — well, last Friday — the White House struck down a petition for a real Death Star on its We the People site. In one swift stroke, the Obama administration Force-choked any politically active nerd’s greatest dream: seeing that technological terror floating beside our lame, forest-free moon.
OK, so maybe building a Death Star was always going to be impossible, even for a computer. Still, Star Wars is a treasure trove of tech richer than the salt mines of Kessel. All those ideas are just waiting to be exploited and transformed into reality.
Some Star Wars tech has already made its way from a galaxy far away to this one: modern toys can simulate the Force itself.
But what futuristic space stuff could the government do well to investigate further? Here are 10 technologies that deserve petitions of their own, for the betterment of mankind. The time is now, White House. Do or do not. There is no try.
Is there any sci-fi tech you’re dying to see in the real world? Let us know in the comments below, you should.
