Wakanda Forever! CIA Schools Tweeple on Tech In ‘Black Panther’

Marvel’s Black Panther was one of the biggest releases of 2018. With stellar performances by Micheal B. Jordan and Chadwick Boseman, the film received praise from all and was rewarded with multiple nominations at the 91st Academy Awards.

Wakanda Forever!

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) joined in on the Oscar fever by discussing the technology that the film has used to create a futuristic kingdom — Wakanda.

A top CIA scientist answered various questions that the technology in the movie had risen.

When asked which technology would Twitter users like to see become a reality in the future, they answered “virtual cars”. However, the CIA scientist said that “she’d be most excited for Kimoyo beads.”


Holograms? Really?

The next question asked by CIA was this: “Which of these Wakandan technologies do you think would be the most appealing to real-world spies?”

The most popular answer was holograms.


Captain America Would be Jealous

Vibranium is the strongest metal in the Marvel universe — even stronger than Captain America’s adamantium shield — and has helped “the fictional African nation of Wakanda become the most technologically advanced country on the planet.”

But, is it real? or is it a substitute for a real metal?

CIA scientist, Rebecca, says that it is fake (surprise, surprise)! However, there are some material that posses certain qualities that match the uniqueness of vibranium.

Which technology do you think should exist in the future?
