10 Futuristic Items We Still All Want

The future may be upon us in some ways, but there are plenty of items on our personal wishlists that haven’t been fully realized as of right now. We’re all hoping to get our hands on an invisibility cloak, a flying car, or even a force field that can prevent bullets. Of course, some of this stuff is already in early prototype by the military and various government agencies, but that doesn’t mean the public is getting their hands on it anytime soon. Anyway, here are ten futuristic items we want as soon as possible.


Germany tried to launch their soldiers over minefields in World War 2 using a crude form of the jetpack, but we haven’t actually seen anything fanciful or useful as of yet. Martin Aircraft Company, of New Zealand, is working on making this a true reality, though.

Meal Pills

Just imagine; an entire meal, perhaps even a seven-course fancy dinner, all encompassed within a single pill. Of course, food is still amazing and we absolutely love chomping down on some pizza, but the idea of simply taking one quick nutritional pill is quite cool.


Honestly, we’re pretty close to this already. With the new breakthroughs in 3D printing and connecting machinery with our bodies, full fledged cyborgs are only a matter of years away, not decades. Let’s all get robotic eyes and arms as soon as possible.


In some ways, the military has already created Invisibility for our soldiers (within the United States). By manipulating wave lengths, it is entirely possible to ensure soldiers, entire vehicles, and the people themselves are completely hidden from the enemy.


Anyone who has traveled any length in the last year probably already understands how expensive it can be. However, just imagine how much the costs will be cut if you could simply teleport to another location instead of taking a plane. Instant arrival, saved cash, what’s better than that?

Time Travel

Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to travel back in time to see the dinosaurs, or perhaps even Rome, or maybe into the future? Well, we certainly have. The science behind time travel is nearly incomprehensible, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen at some point or another.


With the upcoming release of the new Star Wars film, lightsabers are definitely something we want to get our hands on. Swords may be outdated, but think about what a single one could do against a group of trained threats. Cut bullets out of the air? Check.


NASA has already explored some of our solar system, but we’ve barely even scratched the surface when it comes to other planets. With hyperdrive attached to our spacecraft, the universe will be our playhouse.


After watching Iron Man numerous times, the idea of wearing an Exosuit an wandering around is too enticing to force out of our heads. Just think about being stronger, faster, and more agile than ever before.

Underwater Cities

Humankind is expanding very, very rapidly. In fact, we’re almost to the point of having very little livable land left to colonize. But underneath the water, down in the depths of our oceans, there is plenty of room for expansion, new homes, entire cities! Just like in BioShock!
