7. Matter Replication
- Chances We’ll See It: Medium
Star Trek has one of the more popular science fiction inventions often referred to as a Matter Replicator. Other futuristic shows or films have had similar. Essentially, they are capable of making anything needed that is made of matter. It’s in the name, people.
How possible is this? We do already have 3D printing possible. This is just slightly flawed for now but once it is perfected, then something like matter replication overall seems like the next best step to take. How far off is this? Likely a few decades sadly.
