12 futuristic movie gadgets we need right now

These movie gadgets may be fictional, but they sure are awesome. Isn't it about time we start seeing this stuff in the real world?

11. The Universal Remote (Click)

The all-powerful remote from Adam Sandler's 2006 movie Click is like TiVo on steroids: It lets you pause, skip, fast-forward, or replay any moment in your life.

Of course, Sandler's character in the movie gets a little out of control with his clicker-given powers. But if we had one, we'd totally use it in moderation -- right?

Oh, and a bonus: The remote comes with Christopher Walken as your personal (albeit somewhat creepy) tech support agent.


12. WALL-E (WALL-E)

Taking out the trash could be a thing of the past if we all had our own personal WALL-E assistants. WALL-E, the star of Pixar's 2008 film of the same name, is a robot built to clean up the junk-laden planet humans have left behind. He takes trash into his robot tummy, compacts it, and gets it out of the way.

Put him in a happier environment -- say, my apartment -- and WALL-E could do wonders. Plus, I suspect he and my Roomba would really get along.
