Self Driving Cars – Flying Ford Anglia:

Harry Potter Series never fails to astound me. The scenes of Self-Driving Flying Car made me laugh a lot and amused too. Because, at first I thought there won’t be a Car of such kind in real world. But, with some changes Google intorduced those Self-Driving Cars. Not only Google; Tesla Motors, BMW, Apple are also keen about designing such kind of cars in near Future.

However, Google‘s Self Driving Cars are a bit reality for a while in California, but they are still not available in the commercial markets. Whereas in UAE, self driving cars are available for commercial use since 2010. So, what did Harry Potter do? It even made Google, Apple to copy its features for Commercial Use.

Nueralizer – Memory Erasing Charm:

Actually, Memory Erasing Charm(Obliviate) is a magic spell used by Professor Gilderoy Lockhart on Harry Potter, but it backfires on to him. And it is similar to the Nueralizer Equipment seen in “Men in Black.

Teleporter – Magic Spell to Switch Places:

In Harry Potter, we come across a few spells to switch places from some particular locations like Under Home-Fire Chimney or from the doors of Vanishing Cabinet in Room of Requirement.

That is actually similar to the Future Technology, so called “The Teleporter“, which is also seen in different instance of movies like Star Trek.

But, the Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that you may either know the position or the speed of a particle but never both simultaneously. True Teleportation of people and objects from one place to another will likely never seen in such assumptions.

Thus, “Teleporter” is also a Future Tech that had been predicted by Harry Potter.
