As time passes and technology continues to advance, there is seemingly nothing we can't do. Well, in theory, at least. The following list of inventions that haven't quite reached the point of perfection will hopefully blow you away in terms of potential. Just don't get you're hopes up about having them in your possession anytime soon, as most of them are years away from being a reality. Still, it never hurts to look ahead at what's on the horizon.
The ability to stop someone from bleeding in a matter of seconds could prove rather useful in the medical community. Luckily for them (and us), VetiGel is here to save the day. Said to not only seal off wounds, but also potentially heal them quicker and even aid in the regeneration of organs one day, the synthetic gel only has one current downside: it is only being used on animals until it is proven safe for humans.
