    20 Futuristic Products That’ll Probably Make You Feel Like You’re Living In 3020

    What's even better than science fiction? These products that exist IRL.

    1. A reusable notebook for blasting your notes directly to smart devices via an app. Just wipe it clean with a damp cloth when you're done, and it'll be good to go again.

    2. A tiny Bluetooth speaker with mind-blowing sound — it'll make your regular-sized one seem like a relic.

    3. A Blade Runner-inspired lightsaber umbrella that'll still look perfectly in place in 2049.

    4. Wireless Bluetooth earbuds so you can abandon the constraint of wires forever and move into the 22nd century.

    5. An Echo Spot for catching up on the news before work or catching up with family via video chat (all via voice command, btw) — and that's just two of the many, many things this lil' gadget can do.

    6. A spinning makeup brush cleaner that'll quickly swirl your dirty brushes in soapy water, then spin them completely dry within 30 seconds. Your skin doesn't appreciate dirty, germy brushes, so now you have no excuse not to wash them!

    7. A Dyson hair dryer that honestly looks like it dropped out of a UFO. But in all seriousness, it dries hair so quickly and quietly, you'll wonder if it's actual alien technology.

    8. An automatic pet feeder so you can pre-schedule when food gets dispensed for your furry friends or even feed them remotely from your smartphone.

    9. A rechargeable sonic facial cleansing brush for removing all traces of dirt and makeup and providing gentle exfoliation. Plus, it just looks super cool.

    10. A motion-sensor toilet light to make the ol' porcelain throne feel like a state of the art piece of technology. No more bright overhead lights when you need to pee at 3 a.m.!

    11. A robot vacuum to suck up all the pet hairs and dirt around the house so you don't have to. Now you can do something else with that extra time.

    12. A rechargeable wireless touch sensor lamp you can take anywhere light is needed, even if there's no outlet in sight. It can be dimmed or turned off with a tap.

    13. A space pen for writing at any angle, even upside down. It'll work under water, in extreme temperatures, or even in zero gravity.

    14. A (Bluetooth-powered) ComBadge to make every Trekkie's dream come true. Now if we can just figure out how to make a real-life transporter.

    15. A wireless pocket projector for accessing a giant screen anytime, anywhere. The best part is it can fit in the palm of your hand.

    16. A LED shower head that'll display the exact water temperature *and* change colours according to the water temperature so you know exactly when to get in.

    17. A smart digital frame for uploading and displaying an unlimited number of paintings and photos. You can even cycle through them via the touchscreen or an app.

    18. A Darth Vader Clapper so you can use the force to turn off the lights instead of a switch.

    19. A futuristic LED word clock that'll make you ask, "What year is it?!" when you wake up.

    20. A bidet to literally wash your butt for you. If that isn't progress, I don't know what is.
