Top Ten Future Inventions Everybody is Waiting for

The Top Ten

1 Time Travel

We need time travel to the past I don't care if its 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. We have threats of nuclear war, we would end up like the dinosaurs. The impossible must be possible, any scientist out there could have it and doesn't want to show.

If Time Travel is impossible, how about nostalgia goggles, see things from the past or I suppose that could happen in Virtual Reality.

A real-life version of "Back to the Future"? THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME!

Since I began to have a better understanding of how time travel works when I was about 11, I fantasize about it all the time. I dreamed of being taken to the future by aliens. I dreamed of bringing people from the '80s to 2016. I dreamed of being much older (like 21) and traveling back to the 1700's and falling in love. I wish this were possible. There are so many things I would do. - RockFashionista

2 Flying Cars

How do we keep traffic laws if flying cars was a thing? - Mcgillacuddy

I think it's already out - zxm

Flying cars are boring. I want Flying bananas instead - TwilightKitsune

I can only imagine! - Ananya

3 Travel To Mars

Is there life on mars?

We would polute Mars just like we did to earth. We should instead travel to place like earth itself.

You would live there forever in peace :P! - njalabi63989

And what do we find? The plot of Mistborn, I tell ya. "Martians" are really allomancers. - Merilille

4 Underwater City

That would be so cool. Imagine the things we can see down there.

Yeah just like Bioshock - Mcgillacuddy

5 Teleportation

I can visit wherever I want, whenever I want! I can complete my vacations in just 1 week!

This one is really interesting no more time wasting in traffic - Righteous

I hate stupid long drives. If something ever like this was being built, it would be CRAZY

I've been anticipating this transportation solution since I first saw Star Trek air in the 1960's. I don't NEED the internet, a smart phone, GPS, a trip to space, etc. I do NEED (and WANT) a teleporter even more now than I did when I was a kid.
Note: The site is telling me I'm spelling teleporter wrong. Since it hasn't been created yet, why should I listen to a software program tell me that I'm using a generic term incorrectly? Yep, I don't need that BS either. Damn it, just give me my teleporter before I become soylent green.

6 Food In Pill-form

People here are commenting how the food wouldn't be the same, which is true, but under harsh conditions these pills would be very useful, since they would be small and easy to carry. - Martinglez

No way. I live for enjoying my food bite by bite - Mcgillacuddy

No, that would suck. - Swellow

If that happens food will no longer be food. It will be more like a medicine cure. - njalabi63989

8 Jet Packs

As long as we don't get that I Robot, Ex Machina mumbo jumbo where robots manipulate humans - Mcgillacuddy

The Contenders

11 Computers Smarter Than Humans

I think computers are already like this - Mcgillacuddy

I don't want that, never

What dies that mean?

Oops! Meant to vote for Time Travel. Oh how I'd love to be taken to 1920, 1930s or 1940s... *Sigh...* - Britgirl

12 The Driverless Car

If we have teleportation, we wouldn't need a driverless car or a flying car.

We're almost at this point. Teslas have auto driving. - Mcgillacuddy
