Fiction – The mother of science and invention!!

Fiction – The mother of science and invention!!

We possess a great deal of incredible inventions , some of them when thought upon seem to belong to a totally different world. Those like pocket computers, PDAs with pens to write on them (which is actually writing with a pen on a screen) bulky devices like computers,pianos and cameras turned into compact and miniature devices. Doesn’t all this seem to be some kind of fantasy story in which dreams and thoughts are coming true. Well,yes! All this was actually someone’s imagination years and years ago , that has turned into reality today!!

Scientists and engineers , invent and construct loads of things and yes the roots of the initial idea  behind such amazing devices lies in some kind of imagination. Residing in the 21st century, We never just believe on words and neither should we. We  should believe on facts and figures so here are some examples to justify my point.We start with the latest invention – “The google glass”, one of the most amazing discovery has it’s roots to the movie “Star Trek” which showcased a virtual display device that helped the evil people to see outside their ship with just a turn of their head. The movie “Star Trek” inspired one more revolutionary discovery “3D printers”. The movie had flashy items coming out in air like anything which is very much like the 3d printers these days that can make  jewelry ,food and many other things. Another movie that has inspired a lot many inventions is “Minority Report”. First invention is the “Air Touch Technology” that was inspired from the heads up displays portrayed in the  movie, A taiwan based company says that after wearing some particular glasses they generate a private air touch display that doesn’t requires any kind of physical keyboard or screen for input. These are some of the numerous examples available.

Apart from these particular examples , in general , our ancestors during the earlier times , had some people who used to predict all these gadgets like flying cars and portable phones(i.e. cell phones) and were called to be crazy But these gadgets are a reality now.

Amazing isn’t it? Ofcourse, yes! It is amazing to see that someone’s imagination can be the root of discoveries and it is always such crazy people that ignite the spark needed for an incredible invention. Thus, Ideas and Imagination from “crazy” people who think out of the box has always been the mother of inventions and for sure it will keep inspiring us further. So, From now whenever you have some odd idea don’t resist, think upon it , put it forward, You never know your idea may turn into reality some day!!!
