    What are some things you've seen in sci fi or fictional movies/tv/books in general that you see in reality?

    Smart Phones/devices and Mother Boxes from the DC comics

    OBJECT » Mother Box appears in 277 issues.


    In the DC Universe, Mother Boxes are small, sentient, supercomputers primarily used by the New Gods. They have many capabilities, including transportation and energy manipulation. As they're connected to the Source, they have countless applications.

    Description
    [​IMG]
    Mother Boxes are small portable supercomputers created by the New Gods. They were invented by the Apokoliptian scientist Himon the Artificer using the mysterious Element X. They have vast undefined abilities which range from teleportation via Boom Tubes, to energy manipulation. Each Mother Box is sentient and provides its user with unconditional love. They get their name from the fact that they act as caretakers to their users, and provide them with love, in a sense becoming a mother to them.

    Mother Boxes can only be manufactured by a being of the Fourth World, and not all such beings can do so. It is implied that the character of the maker influences the successful creation of a mother box, and that each Box has a fragment of the builder's personality encoded within. Metron stated that each mother box shares a mystical rapport with nature, and that they have a direct link to the Source, from which they draw their power. So, in a way, a Mother Box is best described as a computer link to god.

    Mother Boxes are generally shaped as a box, although this form is not necessary. Mister Miracle had his Mother Box circuitry woven into his suit. They communicate through repetitive pings, which can be understood by their user. They have been known to self-destruct after their user dies although this is not always the case.

    Abilities
    Each Mother box can access the energy to perform a vast variety of abilities. To date, mother boxes have shown capable of:

    • Summoning Boom Tubes
    • Matter transmutation
    • Energy manipulation
    • Force Field creation
    • Healing
    • Gravity control
    • Levitation
    • Emotion Control
    • Illusion casting
    • Technopathy
    • Fire manipulation
    • Phasing
    • Telekinesis
    • Dimensional manipulation
    They appear to have a vast, possibly unlimited variety of abilities, but are generally limited in range to the user's personal space.

    To the New Gods, they are common appliances (used much like a PDA or smartphone on Earth), insofar as a sentient device can be called an "appliance". Other DC characters are given access to them at specific times, when they are in need of aid. Notably, Superman was given one when he went in pursuit of Doomsday.

    I cant remember what it’s called but there’s a device in the book 1984 that’s always watching/listening to you. Just like Alexa.
