Star Trek's Effect

William Shatner was talking in an documentary about Star Trek and its effect on different industries. I didn't watch the entire show but what they were trying to say was all those advanced technology apparatuses that they showed in late 1960s and early 1970s gradually evolved through years and now we see them in the market and use some of them on daily basis.
They show people who basically by watching an episode, they said, they would go and worked on the idea. They received tons of letters from physicians and other health professionals in regards to what Scotty did off and inboard Enterprise.
The question is why none of the inventions ever started anywhere else rather than the US? I remember clearly when I was a little boy Star Trek was shown on a channel called International Channel and it was in Black & White and I watched it a few time on our RTI TV set. It was all before the riot/revolution which is not the point and that is why I don't remember a lot. I was a little boy at the time, may be 5 or 6 but how about all the grown-ups, the university students, the engineers and other technical people? Why didn't ever any invention come out from those guys or from any other country around?

It's actually very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, thus I just use web for that reason, and take the latest information.
