If you were given a chance to design a new device and have it made, what would you design? How would it work? and do you think it could ever be popular?

I would like to see the Star Trek : Food Replicator become a reality!

Devices derived from transporter technology to dematerialize matter and then reconstitute it in another form.

Replicators, in use since the early 24th century, are most commonly used as food dispensers aboard Federation starships. The menu is only limited by the programming, as opposed to the days of carrying natural or reconstituted foodstuffs with delivery by special turbolifts or transporters.

Generally replicated food and "natural" food taste the same, though some people claim to be able to detect a difference. For instance, Captain Picard kept real caviar stored for special occasions since he felt replicated caviar was inferior to the real thing.

I'd like to see something that can allow ISPs to literally live up on their "unlimited bandwidth" trickiness :P

basic, but it would be awsome, something that can produce a smell, so your emerced in game.

i was playing modren warfare 2, and someone was burning stuff outside, it was fantastic, it was like i was more in the game, because i have been to simular places and it smelt exactly like it did when i was there.

A hovercraft.

Well, actually, just a seat which can teleport me anywhere I want to go. Or, teleport anything I need to me.

It would be something like an iphone, but with much more possibilities.

If physics and that kind of things wouldn't have limits, it would be a (i)Phone with

  • A Laser
  • An umbrella
  • A projector (also holograms)
  • A teleporter
  • 3D screen
  • Little things that you can attach to all kind of things like your keys and which you can find by an app on your phone
  • ... much more =)

I would make a company that delivers 50GB per second internet speeds to everyone in the world. For free, with unlimited bandwidth. That would rock.

Ever since I was little, I had been drawing up designs for a teleportation device. I even went to an invention summer camp, and tried to make a toaster oven into a teleporter. Thing is, I never really figured out exactly how it would work. I'll have to contact Aperture Science about that one.
