It can be real. It can be completely fictional.

What piece of amazing technology do you have on your wishlist and are you ever going to get it?

As for me, right now...I kinda want a Nintendo 3DS... but I can't, because it's gonna be around $300. :wah:

Oh, and a Squall Leonhart cloner..

Not that I'm actually gonna get any of this, but I'd really love a wacom tablet so I can learn how to draw without wasting a lot of paper in the process, and a 3DS. I don't have a lot of cash and definitely don't have a lot of time, although I imagine with those items I could actually relax on what little downtime I get.

o man i cant explain how much i want an iPad! I want to develop on one of those soooo baaaaad!! The iOS on it offers so much more than the iPhone and with a bigger screen its gui creation potential is amazing! I also want a Kinect practically just as badly. As soon as I can get my hands on one i'm killing it in here http://kinecthacks.net/ I wont say what i want to create quite yet, but it will be completely awesome once i can get it up and starting.

and for my irrational technological wish. I wish i could stop time on demand. Then i would get SO much sleep, study time, drawing time, programming time......er programming time, progr- AHEM anyways i'd be able to do everything i have an interest in rather than being forced to limit some like film editing *i miss you*

Still can\'t help but love you Rock Lee!!

So like, I have to admit, as much of a tool it makes people look like, I do want an iPad as well. But they're expensive as SHIT.

Hell yeah, I have no desire to really purchase an iPad...especially because of the cost. :blink:

As for the Kinect...very similar feeling...If they came out with more games for it that were the type I'd be excited about (read: non-casual games) then I'd probably go nuts. However, I just don't really like to make my stingy self pay for a console that I'm not sure I'm going to get much use out of. It looks cool as hell and more intuitive than the Wii, but I usually like to pay for games/consoles once they've been out for a while so the price (and initial) hype go down. I'm a cheapo. :awesome:

Keep 'em coming!

(Jazzy, Crystal and I BOTH would probably love for the ability to pause time.. XD)

STOPGA!

definitely a 3DS for starters (i can't NOT play kh:3D) and a cell phone cause i don't have one yet...

When it comes to fictional stuff i want a time machine. It'd be a watch like device and you can set how far back you'd wanna go, whether or not you can be seen by those around you (essentially you can chose for the world around you to be just a memory that you have no control over or not) and of course whether or not to use a 12 hour clock or a 24 hour clock. slam the button (so you can look epic each and every time you travel) and presto!

Let's see...

Real technology:
An up-to-date computer with a decent speed processor, plenty of RAM and a good-capacity hard drive.
A digital SLR
A good phone (and a contract that allows me to access the internet without paying extra for it)
A new DS Lite (yes, DS Lite - the newer DS models don't play GBA games), rather than the usable but not brilliant second hand one that I currently have

Fantasy technology:
A Star-Trek style transporter so I could skip over to different parts of the world to see all my online frends.

And no, I don't expect to be getting any of those.

Well mine does to but....
And I just like going even faster :p

And no the 3DS does not play GBA games, just like the latest XXL thingy DS doesnt.
I think they removed the ARM7 proccecor entirely (or was it ARM9, dont remember) so it wont unless theirs going to be an emulator programmed for.

I might get one, I just won't get rid of my current DS.

Not really any different from keeping my GBA because the DS can't play GB/GBC stuff.

seeing I recently gained a new shortwave, Kindle, and scanner, I'm not exactly hurting for tech gadgets. wouldn't mind a new laptop, some more radio parts, so I can build a vaucum tube radio.
