    Default Which of these is beyond the capabilities of known Star Wars science?

    Yes I know in fiction; anything is possible but I'm looking at this from an in-universe point of view. Which of these would be hard to accomplish based on known Star Wars science capabilities?

    1.) EMP repelling- Something you can put on electronics that makes it impervious to EMP attacks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_pulse


    2.) Age scanner- Something that can scan a rock or a being and tell a scientist how old it is in standard years.


    3.) Psychohistory-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychohistory_(fictional)


    4.) Sentient cybersuit- A suit of powered armor that integrates you with an AI to work together in symbiosis

    5.) Wireless citywide central air- Basically wireless outdoor air conditioning over a large area.

    6.) Simulated reality- Like from The Matrix.

    7.) Artificial pole shift- Something to artificially shape the poles of a planet. I don't know how it would be done but it would obviously be a punishment superweapon

    8.) Ambient intelligence-ambient intelligence refers to electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people

    9.) Bioprinter- Something that can create new organs

    10.) Water synthesizer- Creates water from scratch

    11.) Artificial magnetosphere-https://phys.org/news/2017-03-nasa-magnetic-shield-mars-atmosphere.html

    12.) SQUID-like device -

    13.)Argon matrix laser- Laser weapon that only damages inorganic material

    14.) Neural music composition- Creating music by thinking it

    15.) Solar storm generator- Something that can create a solar storm

    16.) Cultured plant cells- Like cultured meat but for plants

    17.) Torsion field drive- Alternative FTL method

    18.) Zero point energy generator

    19.) Giant solar space farm

    20.) Creation of mirror life

    You can pick only one if you want.

    Nothing, because Star Wars is fantasy not science fiction.

    4.) More or less what the Phase 3 Darktrooper was. Basically it was the stormtrooper equivalent to an Iron man suit.
    7.) The force does this to a degree. It can show you or those you will what you want them to see. Even upon death a near dying Imperial basically saw everything all at once experiencing things from the Vong invasion up through the one Sith.
    8.) Raxus Prime is covered in droids and even developed a super intelligence.
    9.) Bacta pretty much does this with enough time.
    10.) Moisture farming.

    I think it's still canon that the pilots use flight simulators. Not quite simulated reality but kind of Vrish I guess.

    As for EMPs that's basically what Ion cannons are so there's probably some anti-Ion tech in some book or comic I think.


    It's a bit odd that some of the films have shown moisture vaporators in places where there appears to be plenty of water-Galen's oceanside farm in Rogue One for instance. Maybe it turns salt water into Fresh?

    In the tie-ins to TFA, it's established that Rey found and was using a flight simulator (part of the reason she can fly as well as she does), but it's not given much of a description, so who knows if there's VR or if it's just a fancy arcade.

    Didn't see any on the Wook.

    Or maybe it's just easier to get water from a vaporator then other sources?
