It's several times bigger than the visible web, and it encompasses a lot more than the illegal or otherwise questionable activities that it is often associated with -- though there's certainly a lot of that going on too.

30 of the Coolest Movie and Television Gadgets
     Sat, Mar 05 2016 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Sci-fi authors are scientifically-inclined by design and they often introduce the world to concepts that they know will come to fruition at some point down the road. What's always fascinated us, however, are all the things that science fiction has promised that haven't come to fruition. It's just human nature to want what you can't have and books, television shows, and especially movies have introduced us to a host of must-have toys, if only they existed."
