Star Trek Technology Coming To Life

I was thinking about what examples of Star Trek technology coming to life there are out there.

One good example is NASA's ion propulsion being used to visit Ceres and Vesta, asteroids, in 2015. A first in terms of orbiting and use of ion propulsion. In fact, the lead researcher first heard the term ion propulsion on star trek!

There's an article about it at Space Geographic.

Other examples out there anyone?
