10 Movie Elements We Wish Were Real!
This is a list of the best elements or items from movies that we wish existed. From technology to fantasy and everywhere in between.
Star Trek, Star Wars, Back To The Future, Harry Potter.........Countless movies over the years have made us wish we were more scientifically advanced or living in more of a fantasy type world - filled with all the cool gadgets, electronics or mythical figures and powers. This list I made, will highlight the most popular and favorite elements, properties & technological designs we wish we could get our hands on.
Let's get into them.......

Back To The Future - Back To The Future Technologies
The Back To The Future trilogy, especially the sequel, left our proverbial brains in a freeze, with our mouths drooling. Drooling over the possible idea, that our future might be filled with truly exceptional technologies, used as the everyday norm. The only question remains is whether or not we will be able to invent & someday basque in these amazingly awesome tech items.....
#10. Flying Cars
Ever since we were kids and saw flying cars in movies, for the first time, we wished they were a reality or would soon be. They are, quite easily, the most anticipated technology that may end up being a reality. Flying cars are actually available on the market today but you'd have to pay an arm and a leg for one. Although, the downside to the present flying cars is that they act more like airplanes than they do with our dreams of hover technology. Our aspirations are that they should be able to fly around like flying saucers, displaying anti-gravity propulsion technology.
Here's a link to check out, about flying cars that are available: Available Flying Cars
Don't You Wish We Had Flying Cars Already?
#9. Hover Boards
With the same technology we'd like to see in flying cars, we'd also like to see in toys and other modes of transportation. Especially the highlighted hoverboards showcased in Back To The Future 2. Wheels, meet air! Skateboards would turn into antiques at the rise of floating boards. Kids & adults alike, would be zooming & flying around on their hoverboards and would most certainly still need to wear the proper protective gear!
Do You Skateboard?
#8. Future Clothing - Technology + Clothes = Awesome!
Power Jackets & Power Laces
Without a doubt, another cool future theme is the joining of technology with clothing. Nike Powerlaces & Powerjackets displayed in "Back To The Future" are just some of the cool ideas that we hope will be on the horizon. Just think about it, clothes that tailor to our fit. No need for women to worry about fitting into their jeans, the jeans will fit them, any size. I like the way possible future fashions look in movies. They're shiny & sharp looking. I often wonder if we'll end up using those designs and look like the stereotypical alien or future civilization portrayed on screen.
*Not that long ago there was a charity that was selling some top of the line Nike Powerlace replicas on Ebay for charity. They were pretty expensive and are all gone now. Maybe someday they'll make the replicas of clothing available even if they don't actually harness the technology aspects from the movies.
#7. Time Travel!
Let's not forget time traveling! Countless movies have showcased time traveling as a main theme. Whether or not this technology has ever been perfected would most certainly remain a guarded secret. Obviously it seems more far fetched than flying cars and future clothes. Everyone wishes they could travel back in time to change something that didn't turn out the way they would've liked or to travel ahead and see where it all ended up.
Much like any other influential aspect, a lot of people would surely abuse this great device. A device, which I would state, that I hope is never made. It would most likely cause a serious problem. It's almost the same as being the wealthiest person in the world. But in this case you can be the wealthiest person in the world and do even more! It would be a machine and idea that would have to be destroyed to keep the future of this world safe.
If You Could Only Choose One Destination, Would You Rather Time Travel To........
Time Travel Rules & Guidelines!
Only a rare few of us could strictly adhere to the rules of interfering with the course of time. The only plus side to this device would be for us to go into the future and find out what major destruction could be diverted. As if someone from the past could see how our planet is being destroyed and go back in time and make certain technologies never exist or be replaced by an eco- friendly invention. Could you imagine going back in time and changing our power sources to solar and making the first car solar or electric. Imagine the world we would live in!

Time travel you say?
You think you know quantum physics and the theory of space travel? Maybe you do, but this book might peak your interest.
Back To The Future On Youtube
Here are some Back To The Future videos on Youtube! I highly suggest watching the bloopers and outtakes from the first movie! They were hilarious!
With all the fans of The Star Wars movies, you know they would all give a loud & resounding "YES!!!," if such elements from those worlds were brought into reality. What do you think would be the most popular aspect that the fans would want most of all? Here comes 2 of them.......
Which Ones Do You Like?
The Star Wars Saga
Star Wars items are everywhere! Here are the most popular selections to silence those force cravings!
Holy smokes! Could you imagine lightsabers were a reality!?! One things for sure, a lot of people would be missing body parts because of this weapon. As much as kids & fans like to play with this toy, they would most likely never be able to handle such a dangerous piece of technology.
People would be cutting anything they could get their lightsaber through, which of course is almost anything our mind can think of. It would be saber madness!
Also, seeing as how swords are old and outdated in the sense of newer weapons, lightsabers wouldn't be able to defend against guns. Which brings us to the next item.....
Star Wars Lightsabers
Toys and your imagination are the closest you can get to owning a real lightsaber. Keep crossing your fingers and maybe it will become a reality!
I can remember having a dream once, where a lightsaber was just out of reach, but there was so much going on in the dream that I couldn't get to it. If only my mind would've remembered to use the force and use psychokinesis to get it!
#5. The Force!
The unseen spiritual cosmic energy that binds all things together from the world of "Star Wars". If you tap into it by becoming a Jedi then you might be able to use your lightsabers to defend against guns & most importantly, to be a multi-universal peacekeeper. Training as a padawan, to become a Jedi Knight, would be a highly sought after role. But seeing as how padawans are chosen from a young age, a lot of grown adults would be crying for not being accepted into such a high regarded club of elite warriors. Which I'm sure some Jedi's would turn into Sith's and there would most certainly be a war!

Do You Believe In The Force?
#4. Laser Guns
Laser guns would be an awesome addition to the arsenal of current weaponry. You'd surely need one if you couldn't be a Jedi. It's of the highest probability that you won't be able to stop a Jedi, or a Sith, with a laser gun, but hey! you might get lucky!
If you can't swordfight or harness special abilities then just get yourself a laser gun, a wookie, a cool spaceship and be a smuggler. You never know, someday you might just end up leading a rebellion against an evil imperialistic empire & subsequently bag yourself a smoking hot princess who can chain choke an outlaw criminal monster who makes her dress in a scantily clad bikini for his pleasure.. All the best to ya! There's in absolute no way! nothing wrong with being a Han Solo. Some say he is the best of all the characters from the movies.
Who Do You Like More?
Star Wars Weaponry
There were a lot of cool weapons in the Star Wars movies and thankfully they've made them into toys! So at least we can play with those, as an alternative....
Space! The Final Frontier!
#3. Advanced Spaceships - Star Trek Technologies
The world of Star Trek encompasses many technologically advanced pieces of machinery. The idea of personal space travel is growing stronger and stronger, but is still very far off from being the same price as an airplane ride. Someday we might even get the reality of a moon base or other habitations on planets & moons. Many children dream of being astronauts and as time travels forth, the realization that we may also end up being space explorers traveling by ship, could quite possibly become a reality.
Although, with NASA's decommissioned state, it might not be as bright. Down the road though, this country's space program might again see new light as the private sector continues to push on with space travel. Other countries are still blasting into space with their rockets and someday there might be a one nation type space program set up so that all countries citizens are available to go into space and share the wealth of the expensive travels and conquests. However, we would still need advanced technologies to be able to travel the depths of space in a timely fashion. It would take us forever to travel where we would want to go at this present time. We would need a new propulsion system and most definitely warp speed!
Would You Join Starfleet?
Star Trek Collectors
Without a doubt, the most bought collectible items for any movie or television show is that of the "Star Trek" goodies. Fans make their homes into starships and wear their favorite uniforms, while watching their favorite futuristic show/movies, while sitting in their Captain's chair! Engage!
Star Trek Versus Star Wars
Star Trek or Star Wars?
#2. SuperHeroes & SuperPowers!
As a child I can remember playing superheroes with my brothers. We would put blankets in the backs of our shirts and run around the room while holding our arms out, to make believe we were flying. Even as grown ups, everyone wishes they could have superpowers. Invincibility, invisibility, super strength, x-ray eyes & the ability to fly..... are just to name a few!
Did You Ever Play As A Superhero When You Were A Kid?
Sadly, the closest superheroes can come to reality is by way of movies! There are real heroes in this world, which is awesome by the way! but they don't have super powers. They weren't hit with gamma rays, subject to radiation and have most certainly not genetically mutated. They are, however, made of the same spirited heartfelt strength and determination like that of the big screen & comic book heroes!
Just think of what type of world we would live in if superheroes were real. Granted, we do have heroes in human & animal form. Whether it's police, firefighters or a good samaritan coming to the rescue during an emergency situation without worry or fear. A cat or dog dialing 911 or warning us of immediate danger.
Also, if we had real life superheroes saving the day it would figure that we'd also have supervillains. Everything has it's polar opposite. Everything has a weakness. Even Superman with all his powers is rendered helpless to Kryptonite. I'm sure we wouldn't mind having a weakness in order to have superpowers, it comes with the territory!
What Super Power Would You Most Want?
Superman will continue to be one of the best superheroes, for ages to come! Christopher Reeve will always be Superman to us retro babies!
With the Harry Potter movies being so famous, it's a no wonder that so many of us wish we could do magic. What a grand idea magic is. Waving or flourishing your wand, reciting a spell and voila! you've made an explosion or picked a lock. It's a phenomenal idea and it lives deep within our hearts and inner child. There are many movies that deal with magic and I will never get bored with witches & wizards.
Yet again, the opposites would be in play. Evil witches and wizards causing all sorts of mayhem. There most certainly would be a ministry of magic, a police force to stop the bad guys. It would seem like fun, to battle using magic, But much like any battle it's dangerous and if magic & spells were a reality it would undoubtedly be as hazardous as the movies make them to be. I personally think we all can make magic already. Whether it's love for the good guys and hate for the bad guys......we send forth our essence, thoughts and spirit into the vast ether ahead of and all around us.
Which Are You?
The World Of Harry Potter
I love the Harry Potter movies and it's sad that it's over! It has always filled me with great joy and strong conviction, to battle the darkness. To enjoy what time we have with family & friends!
Magic does exist! In the ways that it counts!
The Future Is Bright! - Hopes & Dreams
As we look towards the future, it still shines as bright as it always has. Technology is constantly evolving, as is everything on this planet. We dream of reaching the stars that seem so far away. Lest we forget, that we are all stars in our own rights.
Somewhere beyond our reach...... out past the galaxies, someone looks at our star..... which to them, it's named something else. They park their vehicles out under the stars and dream the same dreams as us. Dreams of having superpowers, using cutting edge technology, wielding magic & traveling to distant lands. So we'll keep dreaming and reaching for the stars...... and who knows...... we might just get there someday!

It's chuck full of more movie goodies we wish were real! Also, I plan on making a 3rd one, sometime down the road.
Sure, you can see the stars and space with your regular eyes but if you really want to see more, then you need a telescope. I had a telescope when I was a kid but it was a $20 one from Toys' R Us and didn't come close to the high powered ones that are available. It was cool to look through but I could only see the close up stars, closer and not deep enough into space. Also, if you happen to do some star viewing, the best way is to go into the country because all the city lights pollute the sky, blocking out the stars.
