This movie prepared the way for Stun weapons being issued to the police - although battons were used in the movie, tasers were actually developed and issued. The power/benefits of electric self-drive cars and 24-7 surveillance/monitoring of all citizens is also promoted.

Multitouch computing (using hands/fingers to grab and expand images, in midair in the case of this movie (don't get me started on muscle stress and RSI). This movie also prepared viewers for personalised advertising, ultra-wide band devices and surveillance drones - in the form of spiders.

Aside from the Nokia mobile with its slide cover, this movie prepared us for living in the machine, Second Life, World of Warcraft, etc.

Watch this movie and you'll get used to the idea that your life and all its details are online - just in time for Facebook, Myspace and Listal.

Fantastic Voyage actually got there first - this was all about Nano Technology in action.

This list is in part a tribute to Alan Toffler and his novel Future Shock. In the book he wrote that some would struggle to keep pace with the changes around us. True in part, but movies can really help prime the public at large. This list features all the movies that have in some way eased our path towards the future.

Enjoy

How could we not get primed for three-boobed women without "Total Recall"?
