Advanced technology is a skill introduced in The Sims 3: Into the Future. As Sims build this skill, their ability to successfully use future-tech objects increases.

Sims can learn and increase advanced technology skill by using drink synthesizer, food synthesizer, dream pod, holo-computer, holo disc, jetpack, sonic shower and hoverboard. They can also take a Space Training Class at the Stellar observatory.


What will the Future hold? It's anyone's guess! Advanced Technology might appear daunting at first, but the Advanced Technology Skill will be gained at an accelerated rate while visiting the Future. With practice and patience, (Sim Name) will know how to use Advanced Technology like a pro! Novices will have the ability to change the Future on the Time Portal, program the Fruiti Bobs recipe into the Food Synthesizer, and unlock additional Dream Pod dreams.


  • Unique dream outcomes from the Dream Pod
  • Recipes programmed into the Food Synthesizer
  • Jetpack Flights
  • Sprites shared with the Holo Disc


Digital Dreamer

Dreams can have a profound effect on a Sim's day. Become a Digital Dreamer by having 50 unique dream outcomes and Dream Pod dreams will always begin with a Good Dream.


Being a digital chef isn't just about pressing a few buttons on a Food Synthesizer. It's about pressing a lot of buttons! Program a recipe onto 20 unique Food Synthesizers and you'll receive the ability to program Food Synthesizers to Improve Food Quality to Level 4!
