What Inventions Would You Create To Change The World?
from the a-little-challenge dept
Earlier today I posted a story about ten inventions Newsweek thought might change the world. However, those are inventions that people are already working on and not what kind of inventions people really want. The DaVinci Institute asked that question, and they got quite a number of interesting (and amusing) answers. A self-cleaning house certainly sounds nice, but do you really need plaid spray paint or caffeinated eye-drops? How about “instant sleep”? You walk into a little chamber for a few seconds of shut-eye, and come out completely refreshed. Of course, I wonder how well that would work with the “dream recorder” – to make sure you remembered all your dreams. Fun stuff to get you thinking. Of course, I swear I’ve heard of a bunch of these before, so I wonder how many are really original – and how many are stolen from science fiction stories or elsewhere.
