Top Ten Future Inventions Everybody is Waiting for

The Top Ten

1 Time Travel

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

Time travel to the PAST will never be possible. Think about it, If it did, where are all the people from the future trying to visit us? It may be possible to travel to the future with advanced technology. But there'd be no coming back. And you'd probably die because your body won't have evolved to survive new diseases. - IronSabbathPriest

I was never too sure about this one, because whoever goes back to the past could change the course of history. - Mcgillacuddy

If it happens I definitely go to that time when I born I want to see myself live as a newborn baby - Righteous

2 Flying Cars

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

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

3 Travel To Mars

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

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

5 Teleportation

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.

7 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

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

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

Judging by the a great deal of the intellect displayed on this site, we're already well beyond that time.

I think computers are already like this - Mcgillacuddy

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

I don't want that, never

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

13 Tornado Gun
14 Universal Vaccine

That would be so good and useful! It should rather be first.

15 Death Ray

To kill whom?
