Functional Star Trek Tricorder

The glorious march to making Star Trek real continues! We already have PADDs. Now, thanks to Peter Jansen, a researcher at the University of Arizona, we have a Next Generation-style science tricorder. Its sensors can measure temperature, humidity, magnetic fields, color, atmospheric pressure and more.

Okay, that's done. Dr. Jansen, please get to work on a holodeck next.

The holodeck is already here:

And the best part is that when they are between programs, the "desktop" looks just like the yellow grid of the inactive Star Trek holodeck!

Now they need to get going on jet packs that can go further than a few feet in the air connected to a hose or whatever and a few hundred feet. That and flying cars...where are the flying cars we were promised?
