How long will it be until we can own our very own lightsaber? We’ve all thought it – and with the help of Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum, we might get the answer sooner than we think. Join them on Wednesday 18 March as they delve deep into the logistical science behind sci-fi’s most far out gadgetry. From flying cars, to state-of-the-art biomedical tech, this instalment of Science Fiction: Late invites you to explore the facts behind cinema’s most illogical fantasies to see just how far away from becoming a reality they really are. Throughout this free, three hour session visitors will be able to journey through the space age tech of Star Wars, explore voice recognition innovation with BBC Research and Development and try out a prototype handheld biosensor device just like the ones used on Star Trek. What’s more, there will also be the opportunity to take part in an alien draw-along workshop and discover whether Black Mirror’s killer robot bees could ever become a reality. Let’s hope not, eh? This eye-opening event is available to over 18s only and free tickets are available now – advance booking is advised.
