I just found this site last night: http://www.technovelgy.com/

It is amazing what a comprehensive collection of inventions and tech gadgetry that this website contains, referring to countless science fiction stories and author ideas... And how many of them are actually sorta being worked on today!

Any thoughts? Add this to list of external links at end of article?


WMD[edit]

IS the WMD link on this page a joke (as in, a reference to Iraq's WMD being fictional), or is it a serious link?

TYPES of fictional technology[edit]

I think there are 6 basic types of fictional technologies, but I would like peoples opinions, and possible referance materals. The types are as follows to me: General technology (advanced generally used technology) Secret technology (Technology developed in secret) Alien technology (Technology alien to the culture to who it is introduced.) Mad Science (See Mad scientist) Alchemy (Considers magic and science to be two parts of the one force) Magitech/Technomagic (Uses magic and technology together, but as seperate forces) Corrupt one 02:16, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Magitech and Technomagic[edit]

I am interested in what is sometimes called Magitech or technomagic. Magitech is technology that uses magic, and technomagic is magic that is based on technology. I am interested in getting material about this. Corrupt one 02:16, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

The concept appears prominently in Final Fantasy VI, Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, and GURPS Technomancer, among other sources. I also suggest looking at the pen-and-paper RPG World Tree; better links than the Wikipedia article include [1], [2], and [3]. This game is a setting with such ubiquitous magic that it is the world's technology. -Kris Schnee 21:51, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

Unsourced[edit]

This may be entirely OR. Needs sources. --Lendorien 15:43, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
