I always marvel at the idea that the Aztec culture in Central America was amazingly advanced in so many areas. The Aztecs had an advanced concept of mathematics and astronomy which they used to develop a viable calendar. The very same culture performed trepanning and rudimentary brain surgery. Their engineering developed an aquaduct system as well as sewer and drain systems for their cities. Of course, we all know about the amazing pyramids in the Yucatan and the network of roads and even paved "highways". However, these very same people never developed the wheel.

Perhaps we are overlooking something obvious in our daily lives. Perhaps there is an improvement that you would like to make on an existing product. Better still, perhaps you have an idea for an entirely new invention. What would YOU invent?

A cheap painless personal teleporter.

There is nothing worse then finishing a grave shift and having to wait in the burning light of day for public transport.

At the finish of my shift I would turn around hit the blue button, (not the red one) and be instantly transported to my bedroom.

Three seconds later zzzZZZZzzzzzZZZZZ

I agree an invention for teleportation is what we need. We are to dependent on our gas and cars. One day our world will come to a halt as people go to fuel up and there is nothing in the pumps. Or if the cost of fuel is too high for people like truckers to make a living. Either way we need to find a new way to get around the world.

The hype that preceded the Segway (www.segway.com...), the two wheeled, human transportation system actually touted the device as being truly revolutionary. The inventor and many of it's initial bakcers actually believed that the Segway would revolutionize the way that cities were built. Well, maybe so, but so far the Segway has not lived up to it's promised versatility. Nevertheless, something that I would invent would be something that would be similar to the segway. Except it would allow for the rider to be seated.

A drawback to the current Segway is the fact that a training period is required to accustom the drive/rider to the way that the novel HT (human transport) device steers and moves forward and backward....this is done by leaning. One aspect of the segways' design is that for many, espeically the elderly, the sensation of movement and the necessity for shifting ones weight and balance is often daunting. A version where a person is seated would be a dramatic improvement, especially if the same versatility of the segway is adapted to such a device.

In essence, my invention would be a chair that allows the same ease of transport as the segway. So consider this an adaptation or improvement on an existing invention.

Im currently in the process of developing a few experimental guitar parts.

Will they be any good?

Most likely not. :shk:

I want an android servant to act as my butler, maid, chauffeur, cook, and bodyguard. Maybe if I steal one of those new Japanese bots and modify it to fit my needs...

I'd like to make this little desktoy for writters. It would be this fairly small wooden block with the words Writters Block carved into one side. Aside from that I've always had the ambition to invent a time machine but that'll never happen. Or will it?

I'd invent mind reading gum.

When ever you chewed it, you could read minds.
I wouldn't share it with anyone. I'd keep the power to myself.
It would be worthless if everyone could do it.
When I died, I'd will it to my daughter so she could arm herself
with this ability during her life.

A device that allows me to learns vasts amounts of knowledge in seconds. But the catch is. I dont want anyone else to have access to it.

Then I'd take over the world.....

A device that could record our dreams and play them back on a video monitor.

I think we're actually not too far from having that capability already.

I'd make a viable, repeatable proof of cold fusion... and have the reactor small enough to power my car.
and then I'd build a big potato gun with electromagnetic rails powered by the cold fusion so that there's a small.... thing, that you put the potato on and that's what the rails throw forward, propelling the potato. Imagine the distance........

I'd also invent a virtual reality gaming system that interfaced directly with your brain rather than through goggles and headphones.
