S/F has been dreaming up stuff for over a century! Jules Verne wrote Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea in 1,870. A Czech writer coined the word 'robot' around 1920.

What gets me is inventors rarely mention them and literary critics dismiss the whole field.

So many things we have now are just like what they were in old science fiction shows. I just read they are working on a magnetic "deflector system" that would shield astronauts from radiation on the trip to Mars.
