“May the 4th be with you” is THE pun from Star Wars’ heyday. Granted, it’s an oldie, given that the original Star Wars debuted in 1977, but who cares? It’s Star Wars, for crying out loud.
We love it because sci-fi is where you’ll find the dreams of tech that are now or will one day be our reality.
There are 3D printing machines that can produce chocolate sculptures or body parts. Talk about the wow factor. They’re even available for home use.
One touch on our smartphone screen, and we can see and talk to Uncle Tony who lives on the other side of the world. We call it FaceTime.
Stormtroopers ride hoverbikes. This year a hoverbike is coming to market (please, Santa, pleeeeease).
Robot maids — yep, they exist. OK, they’re not fast and in every home yet, but we’ll get there.

In our part of the wearable tech industry, you can now slip on a Reliefband® and quickly control symptoms of nausea, retching, and vomiting associated with motion sickness, morning sickness, or even VR-related motion sickness.
Hey, that’s another tech advancement — VR! Just slip on a headset and be transported to any world, any place. Kind of like a holodeck. Yes, that’s Star Trek, but it’s still cool.
