Things from the Harry Potter Series that Would Be Cool in Real Life


The Top Ten

1 Invisibility Cloak

I think scientists in Japan have been inventing one lol.

Yeah would be perfect

2 Marauders Map
3 Time-Turner

I might buy the Time Turner that is just Harry Potter merchandise.
I used to have one when they used to have a Harry Potter chess magazine, but sadly it broke. It was like the third film.

It could be really useful if we had it in real life.

I know the dangers, and the true time turners have been destroyed.
But sometimes I actually wished they existed.
You can get them as like egg timers lol.

Leave Time-Turner, Who wants to be the part of Dinner in the Great Hall?...
People can actually eat in Hogwarts Dinner hall in London Warner Bros. Studio Tour for Christmas! - Ananya

4 Magic

Yes. *bad Alan Rickman voice* obviously:

*alan rickman voice* Obviously...

Everything on this list is possible only if this is here! - Cyclne

Ahem people if magic were inventted/discovered then all of the other options could be possible so

5 Quidditch

If you want scientists to invent a real version this would be a really extreme sport.
Flying on broomsticks.
Bludgers are made of iron. Do you really want to use a wooden bat to hit the opposite team player with one if you was a Beater!

Except for Muggle Quidditch.
Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup video game.

We need to get on that! Why hasn't science worked on flying sticks with straw on them? How about flying balls that are hit with bats? Scientists don't work on much of anything else useful a lot, so why not make flying possible?

The death rate would go higher than a broom can - DapperPickle

6 Hogwarts

Hogwarts should be number 1. If Hogwarts was real, everything else on this list would be too!

YES! If I had one wish, I would go live in the Harry Potter books.The originals,not the fake new ones

Where else would us witches and wizards learn how to fight a dark lord that just will. not. die.? He was immortal for so long then he died. I kinda was sad to see him go. Jk! He needed to have died years ago!

I always wanted to be at that school
because you would actually learn things you need in real life. - Fretto

7 Mirror of Erised

Ever had the Harry Potter annuals?
One had a Mirror of Erised draw what you think you would see in it.
Even write your Hogwarts letter.
Cool for Christmas if you like Harry Potter and drawing.

Would be a little wonderful

I wonder what I'd see in the mirror. - AnonymousChick

8 Remembrall

They seem to be a bit useless.

9 Wand

I could duel with it and use it to defend myself

10 Pensieve

The Contenders

11 Apparition
12 SpectraSpecs

Do they work?

13 Resurrection Stone

You get to literally talk to people from the dead, what’s not cool about that?

14 The Room of Requirement

This is the best room! Imagine if you were a fangirl (like me) and you imagined the shire from Middle earth or Tatooine from star wars and it was there! It would be awesome

15 Platform 9 3/4

I need to be able to run into a wall and come out on the other side with a magic train and a witch that comes around and has a sweet trolly! Why doesn't that exist yet?

16 Sorting Hat

This would be awesome for Frats and Sororities - NobodyFamous

17 Deathly Hallows
18 Polyjuice Potion

Or any potion, potion to stop stress.

19 Philosopher's Stone

Fantastic Beasts - I wonder if the American witches and wizards say Sorcerer's Stone.
But then it confused everyone else.

20 Broomstick
21 Elder Wand
22 Hogwarts Houses
23 Sorcerer's Stone

Do American witches and wizards say Sorcerer's Stone, they need to do another Fantastic Beasts movie in America and show the American school and a game of Quodpot.

No..never say Sorcerer's Stone.
JK Rowling regrets letting the title of the book to be changed.
Actually she should've been allowed to have been called Jo Rowling.
and she doesn't have a middle name the "K" is "Kathleen" the name of her mother.

24 Felix Felicis

How is this #23?

25 Quodpot

For the American fans. It's the American broomsport because in the American wizarding world they are more into Quodpot than Quidditch.

26 St Mungos

St Mungos do you have the cure for Epilepsy?

27 Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Come on the school houses are magical creatures from Fantastic Beasts
Horned Serpent, Wampus, Thunderbird, Pukwudgie
They have a class called Xylomancy.
The Transfiguration Tournament.

28 Wizards Chess

Also maybe one like McGonagall's even though it's dangerous and was just used to protect the stone.

29 Diagon Alley Diagon Alley
30 Honeydukes

All those strange sweets.

31 Hogsmeade Hogsmeade
32 Zonkos Joke Shop
