Star Trek the TV and Movie series has a lot to answer for, but some of the cool tech that we have seen and wished for has actually come true. Just look at mobile phones etc, but if you could have any gadget from Star Trek what would it be?
It seems that a phaser or transporter are the top answers, as it happens this guy working in his garage has actually built a Phaser and it apparently works too, maybe! Now is there anyone building the transporter? I could really do with spending the day in California!
