The instant food machine in the priest's apartment in The Fifth Element. The flying street vendor selling noodles was pretty neat, too. Well, I'd take any of the flying cars, really.

Although born from TV, my first thoughts are always matter replicator and holodeck. But in keeping with the thread, both technically exist in the form of the room from The Room (2019).



Sadly, the movie fails to capitalize on its premise. Instead it becomes a pseudo live action remake of Raising Gazorpazorp.

Raise your hand if you too didn't know there was a third "Room".

When the technology from Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind comes into production I will be one of the first to use it to erase the memories of seeing the Prequels, Special Editions and Sequels. Drugs and alcohol don't seem to work.

But, then I will probably notice that there a Star Wars films that I haven't seen yet and then watch them. Life is cruel.

I need tech like Johnny Mnemonic or The Matrix where I can just put shit in my brain so I can finally "watch" all of the movies I own.

I thought of that, but decided that I didn't want to risk my brain being hacked like people living in The Ghost in the Shell universe. I don't want to be like that guy who had been married for years and had a beautiful daughter, only to learn that all that was false memories implanted in his head by terrorists. He had no daughter and he had never been loved.

I want The Fifth Element medical technology. I know too many people who live with chronic pain that doesn't interest doctors, because they only want cases with easy solutions.
