      Hi Mark. That’s a hard question. What a I really want is a pair of glasses which give me an electronic display over the top of my view of the real world. They’d display labels on things, and translate languages, and put people’s names over their heads so I wouldn’t forget them.

      All of those things are mostly possible right now, but not put together.

      Hey guys!

      good question…I would like to teletransport sometimes on days when I’m in a rush – but other days I really enjoy journeys so probably not that (and I’m not sure its technically possible)…I think I would maybe like to make a dust-busting material that you could coat surfaces with that would stop dust ever settling – that way your room would never get dusty, mums (and dads) would be able to do more fun stuff instead of doing housework, it would be easier to keep labs and hospitals clean so that cures could be found for important diseases and to help sick people…and people with asthma and other breathing difficulties would be able to find it easier to breathe.

      What about you?

      I would like a flying car so that I could get around more quickly. I like Drew’s answer very science fiction.

      Mark, Georgia, and Seanod – neat question! At first thought I was thinking I’d really just like to send a probe to Europa, Jupiter’s icy moon and look for life. It’d be so crazy if we found life in such a foreign (and extraterrestrial!) environment.

      On second thought, I was like hey, I’d like a robot side-kick. One with a sense of humor (like Japanese style robot humor) and had all kind of cool gagets.

      I guess basically I want more friendly robots! (not the evil kind for sure) Some for exploration of space (or the oceans or whatever!) and some for fun 😉

      So many possibilities … so little time
