Five Futuristic Movie Cooking Tools We Wish Were Real
|I'm thinking of a huge beer...|
|Technically the Replicator is a "matter converter." Nerds.|
1. The Replicator - Star Trek
Aside from the making Thanksgiving cooking easier, it would end a few problems worldwide -- like that "hunger" issue.
|Back to the Future Part II|
|Mom sure can hydrate a pizza.|
2. Hydrator - Back to the Future Part II (1989)
You remember the scene? It's dinner at the futuristic house in Hill Valley, and Mom McFly opens a tiny foil bag and drops a (product placement!) Pizza Hut pizza small enough to fit in your palm on a plate. She drops it in a Black & Decker (more product placement!) "Hydrator," says "Hydrate level four please!" and, after a few seconds, it comes out regular sized-and piping hot. Sure microwaves do roughly the same thing, but we humans have a love of devices that make small things really, really big.
|It's a light saber, meets a bread slicer!|
3. Bread Slicer / Toaster- Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)
It's simple: it's a bread knife that toasts bread as you slice it. Bad. Ass.
|"Would you like that sous-vide?"|
Will Smith's reservations be damned, iRobots' extraordinary speed, agility and strength allows them to slice carrots at Iron Chef America speed.
|The Fifth Element (1997)|
5. The Flying Food Cart - The Fifth Element (1997)
For high-rise office workers and second-floor & above apartment dwellers, this is a dream come true. Imagine propping open your 17th-floor window, and seeing a Chinese food cart puttering towards you in mid-air. It's how Bruce Willis ate a meal after being fired from his Flying Taxi job.
