The Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU is the biggest shared superhero universe comprised of many Marvel comics beloved superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Panther etc. It’s the highest grossing and most profitable franchise of all times with Box office earnings in excess of $17 Billion spanning 20 movies till now.
In the MCU movies, the characters have some of the smartest and coolest techs at their disposal, which they use against their adversaries. Here’s a list of 10 such gadgets that hold the potential to change the world:
1. Iron Man Armor
Tony Stark is a tech billionaire who invented Iron Man suit which transforms him into a one-man army. He is an MIT graduate who is also the son of a science genius Howard Stark who worked with the US government and S.H.I.E.L.D. He has created dozens of suits in his lifetime from Mark 1 to 50, each has amazing capabilities and features. Imagine, if we could have Iron Man suit in real time. In fact, once former US President Barack Obama joked about the fact that they may be secretly funding an Iron Man project. But it should come with an Arc reactor too.
2. Wakandan Cloak
The Kingdom of Wakanda is perceived to be a poor country in Africa, but it’s actually the most technologically advanced and sophisticated nation there is. And they have managed to hide their true identity from the outside world through a cloak which portrays them as a small Kingdom barely meeting its ends.
Just like Spider-Man is able to track bad guys using this device on his web shooters, perhaps parents can track their kids or cops can track criminals in the modern world. In Spiderman: Homecoming, Tony Stark would
4. Cap’s Shield
Steve Rogers aka Captain America is one of the most important Avenger and also the most principled one. He doesn’t have superpowers (like Thor) or big suits (like Iron Man), instead, he carries a Shield made of world’s strongest metal ‘Vibranium’. It could have a lot of useful applications in the real world.
5. The Maglev Trains
The Wakandan design group in collaboration with T’Challa’s sister Shuri invented ‘Maglev Trains’ whose objective is to mine mountains for extraction of Vibranium that powers the entire country. There could be a host of possibilities if such advanced trains become a reality.
6. Stark’s Robotic Assistants
In modern times who would say no to a pair of robotic assistants who are there at your personal service, things will get real smooth. Stark has a couple of robotic assistants who help him build armors, fix things and even saved his life once.
It’s one of the most sophisticated and robust aerial vehicles that can transport a whole ranger unit and carry powerful rockets and missiles that can take out entire cities and towns.
8. Baby Monitor Protocol
In MCU, Stark has invented a host of deadly suits but he also created ‘Baby Monitor Protocol’ that allowed him to observe everything that Spiderman is doing. He is almost like a father figure to him, its something that parents can appreciate.
9. Remote Access Car
In Black Panther, we saw Shuri driving a car without actually physically inside the car. She could remotely control it from anywhere and provide back up to her brother. It would be cool to go for a drive being at home.
10, Bucky’s Arm
Bucky aka Winter Soldier was turned, brainwashed by H.Y.D.R.A who used him as a weapon, then he started doing Zemo’s bidding. During the process, he lost his arm, then he got a new prosthetic arm which made him even stronger than Cap.
