Once science fiction, today our reality. Technologies in films that have become a fact

Technology is developing at an astonishing pace, transforming science-fiction scenarios into our everyday reality. Below we present several examples of technologies that until recently appeared only in films and books, but today are or will soon be part of our lives.

Smart houses from “Back to the Future”

In the movie “Back to the Future” we see houses that respond to voice and automatically adapt to the needs of residents. Today’s smart homes, equipped with systems such as intelligent lighting, thermostats, and security systems controlled by voice or smartphone applications, are a perfect example of this. Smart home technology is becoming more and more common.

Tablets and touch devices from “2001: A Space Odyssey”

The film “2001: A Space Odyssey” by Stanley Kubrick was presented devices that resembled today’s tablets and smartphones with touch screens. What was once a vision of the future is now an everyday reality. We use tablets to browse the Internet, read books, watch movies and many other activities that have revolutionized the way we consume media and information.

Artificial intelligence from “2001: A Space Odyssey”

Another example from Kubrick’s “A Space Odyssey”. a machine that thinks, learns and makes decisions. Today, AI is ubiquitous – from voice assistants like Siri and Alexa to advanced AI systems that analyze huge data sets, help drive vehicles, and even create art. AI has become an indispensable tool in many areas of life.

VR, i.e. virtual reality, first in Lem’s work, and then in “The Matrix”

Before “The Matrix”, one of the best Polish writers, Stanisław Lem, in his novel, presents the concept of “phantomatics” – an advanced form of virtual reality engineering. However, it was only years later that the idea gained wider awareness thanks to “The Matrix”. is a developing technology that is used not only in video games, but also in education, medicine and training. Companies like Oculus and HTC offer VR headsets that allow users to experience immersive environments and interactions that we could previously only experience in the world of movies.

Self-driving cars from “Total Recall”

Autonomous vehicles that once appeared in “Total Recall” are now being developed by companies such as Tesla, Google’s Waymo, and Uber. Although full autonomy has not yet been achieved, we can already observe tests and implementations of vehicles that can drive without direct human supervision.which is a step towards full transport automation.
