Real Tech or Star Trek?

Okay, people! We’re all familiar with Star Trek technology — the communicators and transporters from the Original Series, Data and the holodeck from TNG, and so on. But are we as familiar with the development of actual technology in the real world?

In other words, how would you score on this 20 question quiz that asks you to tag various technological items as “purely Star Trek” or “real world”?

I got 17 out of 20 right. I credit my habit of glancing quickly through various science and math blogs on a regular basis.

If you have a minute, click through and see how many you get right!

Ah, the benefits of Star Trek technology!

Ah, the exciting promise of Star Trek technology!
