Top 10 Inventions Needed - Future Technology
This was a wish list that was originally intended to provide inspiration for inventors. First written in April of 1997, I thought it might be fun to follow-up each year and find out if anyone has been working on these ideas for future technology. I have included websites for you to "check out" inventions that are, are close to, or kinda close to what I am hoping will soon exist in the technology available to us presently.
1. Future Technology - Free Energy
2. Future Technology – Transporter
3. Future Technology - Replicator Technology (Stuff for Free)
4. Future Technology - Universal Communicator
5. Future Technology - The Cure
6. Future Technology - Fountain of Youth
As a woman I consider this as a no-brainer desire for future technology. The "Fountain of Youth" was a legendary spring that renders anyone who drinks of its waters permanently young. What is the real future technology that will extend our lives and keep us looking youthful without surgery?
