    I have looked as hard as I could on Wookieepedia, and I was wondering if any of these sci-fi tech exist in the Star Wars canon.

    1.) Food in a pill

    2.)Dream-rendering machine

    3.) Stellar engine

    4.)Topopolis

    5.) Claytronics

    6.)Artificial brain

    7.)Utility fog

    8.)Telematics

    9.) Swarm robotics

    10.)Smart toys

    11.)Appliance robotics

    Thanks

    Have you ever seen a Star Wars movie? Never mind read a Star Wars book?

    One of the Bantam books that showed Jacen and Jaina as kids(probably the Jedi Academy Trilogy; can't remember) mentioned "self-aware toys".

    I know we have seen -
    1.) Food in a pill

    I think we have seen -
    3.) Stellar engine

    Don't know -
    2.)Dream-rendering machine
    4.)Topopolis
    5.) Claytronics
    6.)Artificial brain
    7.)Utility fog
    8.)Telematics
    9.) Swarm robotics
    10.)Smart toys

    Don't know what it is -
    11.)Appliance robotics

    I actually think SW is to advanced when it comes to artificial gravity tech for Topopolis to be interesting. And when it comes to anything with nanotechnology in it I can say that nanotech is in some kind of grey area in SW; it is mention sometime and used to explain some phenomena but it dose not seams to be part of they everyday universe. Probably because Star Wars, and its inspirations, was crated in a time when nanotech was not though of and it is hard to just put it in without creating the question of why they did not use that earlier

    Yep with some emergence rations

    I am afraid you will have to tell us what you mean by that one.

    Kind off with Centerpoint and the Starforge.

    No real point to it since they can easily leave their own star systems, though space habitats exist.

    No real need with Holotech.

    Some cyperware goes in that direction and of course Droids.

    Not really, since Nanotechnology has been show to be very expensive in the SW galaxy and thus unlikely to be worth the bother.

    Yep right there in the movies.

    The Trade Federation Control computer in Ep 1 is a nice example.

    Droids ;)

    Droids :)

    I'm fairly certain the real estate qualifications for Han Solo's Sky House include all of these items.

    What is an example of telematics in the movies?

    Astromech-Droids, Autopilot, Navigation Computers, several of those Ep 2 speeders are automated etc.

    This person doesn't seem to know that Droids and Interstellar Spaceships exist in Star Wars... which makes we wonder if he ever even watched a single movie.

    Yeah some of those are common sense.

    Have we seen personal auto-camouflage?

    Have we seen Sky-hooks outside of Shadow of the Empire?

    Lucky for you, there's an entire website dedicated to just this sort of information, even handily filtered by category.

    Starkiller destroys an under-construction Skyhook on Kashyyyk in TFU as well.

    This user, or one mysteriously similar to him, has been asking questions like this in the Knowledge Bank for weeks.

    I think the Chiss were described as wearing some sort of adaptive camo in The Swarm War.

    It might have been outside ILM's bag of tricks at the time of Endor?

    An argument could be made that civilization has largely forgone the use of big armored suits in favor of fielding cheap battle droids. As the size goes up, flexibility generally goes down, so the environments and situations powered suits would find themselves in would be better for droids too.

    You can't forget available cannon fodder, either. How many clones and Imperial recruits were eventually fielded? If you've got people to burn, there's no reason to spend more money protecting each one than it would cost to simply outfit and train another soldier.

    Doubt it.

    I'll make one up for you. If those systems didn't do anything to mask body heat, it wouldn't have been difficult for the Imps to screen for it. Rebel Assault 2 depicted stormtrooper helmets as being able to filter for infrared wavelengths.
