Since we can't seem to stop being violent towards our fellow Man, I would like to see personal force fields that eliminate injury or death due to violence or accidents at a cost of $10 or less per unit. Of course the Government and Police forces would never allow this to come to fruition because they would no longer be able to use violence or threats of violence to force the people into compliance.

Hopechest, the same sort of thing for detecting certain types of women would be good too (there, balance added). Heck, an honesty beam would be sweet. Now, I've never tried this but I think a good way to find out who some one is would be to ask them what their perfect world would be. If the focus on them selves, run and also if they focus on you, run. If they don't know, run. If they say the basics with no details, run. If they say its already perfect, run like hell.
I would want A.I. bots and a super virus thats been developed that wipes out what ever causes stupidity and hypocrisy. That said, Druscilla got almost all the ones I would say.

I have seen the video game consoles in my dreams. In the future when you go and play a game, the system generates brain waves that can upload memories and give you temporary amnesia. The point is that when you join the immersive game you are forced to forget you are playing a game while being injected with memories from your character. Example would be a Call of duty game where when you join you are injected with memories of boot camp, family, experiences etc, you have memories of your birth and then you die and when you die it feels real, all while forgetting you really are and that you are in a game.

With all this new technology what will you do to earn money? What will your kids and grand kids do?
