The Marvel Universe is one of the most famous comic series, turned into movies and shows. The MCU is loaded with cool, futuristic gadgets and technology. However, nothing is a fantasy now as the technology shown in movies and shows is coming closer to reality each day, with infinite possibilities.
Some popular fantasy-turned-real technology from superhero movies include holograms, heads-up-display (HUD), bionic hands, and more. We cannot help but wonder how unnatural technologies shown in Avengers and other superhero movies can turn into reality.
So, if you didn’t know that or you haven’t checked out the realistic technologies from Marvel Movies then continue reading the blog.
We have discussed the seven top technologies from Marvel movies that have turned into reality and are hard to believe.
Also, if you have not watched Avengers: Endgame and other MCU movies, make sure to watch all the Marvel movies in order to see the following futuristic technologies in use along with amazing action.
1. Iron Man’s Arc Reactor
Howard Stark created the Arc Reactor technology, which is similar to nuclear energy. The technology was created for clean emissions and operations. However, it went commercial too early and was turned into a weapon of mass destruction.
Iron Man’s Arc reactor is a source of clean energy that is implementable. Considering the depleting natural resources, Arc Reactor can be useful for humans. Sustained fusion of Hydrogen atoms on a small scale like Tony Stark’s Arc Reactor is enough to power a few homes for a lifetime. The research on a possible Arc Reactor is underway at MIT.
2. Iron Man’s AI Jarvis
Iron Man’s artificial intelligence (AI) assistant Jarvis (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System) is everyone’s dream. In Iron Man, Jarvis is a highly advanced AI that is able to manage and control technology. Jarvis uses several AI languages and technologies like speech recognition, face recognition, and more written in PHP, Python, and others.
In 2016, Facebook (now Meta) founder Mark Zuckerberg created his own version of JARVIS. After years of writing code and machine learning, the AI understands his voice and controls various aspects of his home, such as lighting, temperature, displaying data in VR, and much more. That’s some pretty cool stuff.
3. B.A.R.F (Captain America: Civil Wars)
Binarily Augmented Retro-Framing (BARF) is a pair of holographic illusion technology that you can see in Captain America: Civil Wars. The sensor-enabled glasses can receive and transmit electromagnetic signals from the brain and relay it in front of the glasses. It can be used to replay tragic memories and can be used to cure post-traumatic stress disorder to give patients closure.
It can be used to identify criminals and solve cases with justice. However, in the wrong hands, the technology can be mishandled. That is why Tony Stark did not release the technology to the world and kept it to himself. After Howard Stark’s death, BARF was used to alter memories and create false illusions to launch attacks worldwide.
4. Remote Driving (Black Panther)
Shuri is an awesome MCU character, with her special Kimoyo beads that let her take charge of the car in the Black Panther Korea scene. This is an amazing technology that can help police officers and security workers in case of emergency situations.
The idea of remote driving is not far from reality, as Nvidia was able to bring the scene to life by demonstrating a card-driven by someone wearing a VR headset. In a discussion on autonomous technologies, the CEO of Nvidia, Jensen Huang, revealed footage of a driverless car driving in a parking lot controlled by a remote person via VR.
5. Pym Particles (Ant-Man)
Pym Particles, first introduced in the Ant-Man superhero film, allows the person to change their mass at will. Due to these particles, Scott was able to change his size whenever he wanted. We might not be seeing this technology in the near future, but it has huge implications.
The technology is able to restructure principles of chemistry, and it causes molecules to produce a lot of energy that might not be suitable for the human body. However, considering other materials, this technology can be a breakthrough in medicine as it will allow tiny surgical tools and cameras that can be used to study the human brain. You would be able to perform procedures without open surgery.
Vibranium is the strongest metal in the Marvel Universe, only found in Wakanda. It is lightweight and nearly indestructible and can absorb vibrations at a molecular level.
Hyperloop Transportation Technology has announced that they will be launching the first hyperloop in which its pods will be coated with a material that they are calling ‘Vibranium’. It is not the imaginary element but is a reinforced version of carbon fiber with wireless sensors. Vibranium can be used in soundproofing systems, shock absorbers, and many others.
Nanotech is engineering or systems at the molecular level. Tony Stark’s suit uses this technology that made its debut in Avengers Infinity Wars. His entire suit is housed in one unit, and with a press of a button, different nanomachines would wrap Tony’s body, securing him in a suit.
Nanotech has various implications, from medicine to weapons. There are multiple projects underway in medicine where nanotech can be injected into the human body allowing the doctors to visualize tumors before an operation. Other areas include enhancing optical detection in aircraft.
The Marvel Universe has captivated fans with amazing storylines, action-packed scenes, and futuristic technology. You can find some best and cool tech in these superhero movies. Some of the technology shown in Marvel movies is already under research, and we will be able to see its applications in the near future.
