One of the best parts of watching sci-fi is seeing the cool gadgets that we don’t actually have, but given time and ingenuity, might someday. Transporters, hyperdrives and The Doctor’s sonic screwdriver have all been at the top of my list for years. Now, thanks to scientists at the University of Dundee, the sonic screwdriver has become a reality. No, I haven’t been hitting the Romulan Ale. These guys have done it! Their sonic screwdriver is capable of turning objects around with sonic waves and they expect it to prove useful to medical doctors in treating patients. Now, if they can just get to work on jet packs and flying cars we’d all be happy.
See the real sonic screwdriver in action after the jump!
