After writer Victor Pemberton created the sonic screwdriver in a 1968 serial of Doctor Who, Fury from the Deep, the tool has become an iconic part of the Doctor's arsenal alongside the time-traveling TARDIS. It's something of a wonder tool, able to open locks as well as perform repairs using ultrasonic waves, and now some engineers are saying it could actually be made.
After being on television for almost 40 years, it's no wonder Doctor Who's fanbase is so large. Beyond all that sweet time traveling, though, are the cool gadgets.
