We would need to inspect a working one closely.  For instance, in the pic below, the personal shield is the stone object in the necklace.  Inspect closely....

Given nuclear power and the ability to make high temp superconducting wire (probably a long shot), we may one day have magnetically confined plasma shields for spacecraft.  Which will solve a few problems with human space travel.

That's probably about it.

Subby is a idiot. A Holtzmann generator produces mass cancelling effects as an inherent byproduct of its operation. You can't NOT have a force field with your cold fusion engine.

Around 10k years in the future, according to my sources.

Give or take the date a few thousand years for the founding of the Empire or the Butlerian Jihad.

Still haven't solved the lasgun problem.

They don't always work.

That's a monster from the Id, a projection of pure thought.  It's really unfair to expect a force field to hold back something that doesn't have a self-sustaining form requiring physical continuity.
