I think the inventions that are going to happen in my life time that see things from my childhood sci fi come to be reality is going to make the next sixty-odd years extremely cool

I still find these 3D printers that print artificial cosmetic surgery implants like facial reconstruction stuff to be awesome. Next stop: Star Trek replicators!

no. replicators concept is a disaster. i am a big fan stargate tv series. watch the replicator episodes. mind boggling.
i would like to see vital organ replacements such as liver, kidney, lungs and heart.

Replicators in Star Trek aren’t the same as stargate :P

Richard Dean Anderson is a great TV actor with a neat sense of humour - have you seen him guesting in the Simpsons?
