Top 10 Most Wanted Inventions

Inventions to make life easier or more interesting. As simple as possible in a complex world.
The Top Ten
1 Teleportation Device

Has any serious thought been given to this idea? In order to "teleport" any matter, it has to be converted to energy. The conversion of the typical body mass of a human being to energy in any small period of time (i.e., 1 second) would create a devastating explosion.

Even if this could be somehow controlled, think of the complexity of the biochemical components of the human body. The reassembly into an animated and living sentient human being would require an almost unimaginably complex code that would rival the storage capacity of all the computers currently existing on Earth.

This idea is science fiction fantasy at best and, in general, balderdash.

2 The Cure for Deadly Diseases

Personally, I think this should come first. Time travel or teleporting isn't the most important because we wouldn't find a way for it to work well for centuries. Keeping people healthy would benefit us much more, and it shouldn't be too hard to find out if we keep trying to find a cure.

We desperately need a cure for cancer and other deadly diseases. I really do not think that these medical doctors are being efficient and are wasting time finding the cure. Therefore, I strongly agree that something needs to be done about finding this cure.

3 Time Machine

If I had a time machine, I would kill Hitler and prevent Abraham Lincoln's death. I would also give cavemen iPads. Additionally, I would attempt to change the world by providing machine guns to Native Americans and supplying dinosaurs with missiles and food to ensure their survival until today.

The Time Machine should be ranked as number one, not number two.

I want to invent a time machine, not to use it, but to have that feeling that I accomplished the task of making one and that humanity has conquered time. If it was released to the public, it would take 10 seconds for everyone to abuse it.

4 Animal Communicator

To make an animal (dog, for example) communicator gadget, you have to record and catalog its barks and movements (the bark is more important) and make notes as to what the bark possibly means. Over time, you will be more certain of the bark's meanings.

Have a programmer code the English meanings that will trigger the bark, and you can already talk to your dog via your communicator.

A bark will be recorded in a common format, such as mp3, and linked to its English meaning, which will appear in the gadget panel. Set up a categorized list of appropriate English language replies, where each reply is linked to the corresponding bark.

This way, you can see the meaning of the bark on the panel and select the English message linked to the correct bark from the categorized barks.

5 Instant Learning: Download Knowledge Directly to Brain

Yes, this would be fascinating, but it would require humans to have synthetic implants inside our own brains. Yet, this technology is in development, but being able to alter one's memory bank is harder than it looks.

That would be called cheating in school, but still awesome! A brain internet chip would also be cool, allowing one to see the internet before their very eyes via the chip.

Sometimes we don't have time to study! It would be even better if, once you put it in, everything the teacher says goes straight to storage.

6 A Device to Record Your Dreams

I'm pretty curious about what I dream about every night since I forget my dreams a lot. A device to record your dreams so you can see them afterward would be cool to have.

Did you know you actually dream every night, and if you think you didn't, it's just because you forgot it?

I honestly wonder if someone will actually invent that.

7 Hoverboard

Imagine never putting up with another traffic jam, parking ticket, car accident, or hour spent sitting. As long as you had a full battery, a solar charger, and a parachute, you could have fun flying across the city and doing some neat tricks too!

It's 2015. We should have those by now.

8 Invisibility Cloak

A material that bends light completely around the object it's wrapped around. If light doesn't fall on an object, it isn't seen. If it isn't seen, it's invisible!

The Invisible Suit/Cloaking Device can be extremely useful for the military.

I'll purely be the Phantom of the Night.

9 A Device for Remembering Everything

I think this device will be great for students to remember their lessons, even older people so they don't forget or lose something. But, on the other hand, it may be a bad invention for some people by making them remember bad memories, causing them to have depression.

If it remembers everything, it literally remembers EVERYTHING. I think we all know that there are some things in your life you don't want to remember but rather forget. This kind of machine could ruin lives, but it's cool.

I need this very urgently. I forget everything, even mostly where I place things.

10 Salt Water Desalinator

With an increase in the world's population, we are running out of fresh drinking water by the minute. Soon, there will be a worldwide shortage of water in every country. It's already happening in the Middle East, Africa, the "stan" countries, Turkey, Ukraine, and some parts of Asia, especially China.

Yes, there are already some desalinators in countries such as Australia, the United States, Mexico, South Korea, China, Japan, South Africa, and more. However, they could be improved to gather a lot of ocean water quickly and import it to other water-needy countries.

If I were to install ten desalinators in ten countries, I would choose China, Egypt, Uganda, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Japan, India, and Madagascar.

The Contenders
11 Alternative Biofuel That Can Be "Grown" at Home

Gas is expensive nowadays, so I think it would be amazing if I started looking into it. It would be so cool. What do you guys think about this idea I have?

Put the multinational oil companies out of business and get petroleum out of politics.

12 Flying Car

Possible, and it could revolutionize the oil crisis. Magnetism could be used, meaning cars would no longer require gasoline, saving money and the environment.

Think about it. You could drive to Pizza Hut in mere seconds! This NEEDS to happen!

Flying, roadster, and floating car: truly an amphibian car.

13 Accurate Lie Detector

An accurate lie detector would be nice but will never exist because each person is different and sends different signals that a lie detector would respond to. They could be easy to cheat for some people, for example, psychopaths.

I, for one, feel that an accurate lie detector would help the criminal justice system.

Many people lie without even thinking about it.

I think it would work great.

14 Battery with Long Life

This will never come because they want you to buy batteries more often, so they make them last for short periods on purpose. And that sucks.

Batteries are notoriously short-lived. A device with double the life is worth a lot of money.

15 Telomere Extender Serum

Unfortunately, this would also mean you're more vulnerable to cancer, with one less mutation needed. But the idea is kind of cool.

This extends life for humans. Therefore, we can all benefit from telomere extension.

16 AIDS Detector
17 Mind Reader

If people knew what I was thinking, they'd stay away from me.

If you are really curious or want to know what someone's thinking.

18 Wishing Machine

I misread that as a washing machine, but yeah, everything will be mine. End world starvation, anything.

That way we can have whatever whenever!

The world would be crazy with this!

19 Bio-engineered "Mealfruit" That Provides 100% of Nutritional Needs and Can Be Grown In Home Garden

This might be very useful for astropioneers when they move to Mars. The plant providing this wonder fruit should also produce 10 to 20 times more oxygen than a regular plant and should grow very fast.

First of all, a home garden requires a machine that can control the entire system.

20 Batteries that Work Forever

That would be extremely helpful for the environment.

21 Glow In the Dark Trees

It would help a lot of people if this was possible. Any light helps people who have to walk on dark streets or live on a dark street. No one wants to be seen committing a crime when lights are shining.

People would never be scared of the dark again - only the creepy cherry tree at the end of the lane.

No more terrified kids screaming through your window at night.
