    I didn't manage to catch much of Final Conflict but a few episodes of it also assured me that I would love it very much.

    Babylon 5 is another 'space universe' that I like very much as well.

    In some ways, we _are_ living that way. For instance, doors that open automatically when someone steps near it -- we have that now. Small wireless phones -- we have that now. Whatever they call the device they use to communicate with other ships -- we have that now too.. it's called videoconferencing :)

    Ya, my IT lecturer gave some examples of inventions that came about as a result of the technology in sci-fi movies. Can't remember what they are now... :wall:

    But I'm still waiting for a real lightsaber :haha:

    Not sure how that would work.. generally speaking, SW is more based on flash than substance. Stuff there will probably be unworkable for quite some time :)

    People _do_ have the force.. in a limited sort of way. It's what tells you that someone is staring at you, and what stops you from walking into an open manhole :) Other people have other aspects of the force -- it's sometimes called charisma or animal magnetism. :)

    Some people can apparently read minds, move objects by force of will etc.

    That's leaning more towards telekinesis and telepathy (Jean Grey and Professor X come to mind :mrgreen: ). Would be really cool but probably impossible.

    I don't know much about this kind of stuff, but I doubt that scientists will actually be able to develop a lightsaber that looks and functions the way it does in the Star Wars movies. The way I see it, it's either you have something solid that glows with light (but hence cannot be retracted when not in use), or something that is made up of light and/or energy only but you won't be able to use it to fight because it's not solid. :think:

    It could be some sort of luminous chemical. Pushing the button would cause a pump to shoot it out like water from a fountain. When the cutoff mechanism is triggered, it'll just behave like a fountain that's turned off slowly.. it'd get lower and lower and then disappear.
  19. We all had a lightsaber once when i was a kid.... *nostalgic look on face*

    Someone stuffed (orange) crayons into the thing and they got stuck inside and it got seriously messed up. :haha: :haha: :haha:
