What do you wish someone would invent

I had a hard week, I ended up working double shifts the last 3 days of it and decided to go to the movies today. In back of us, sat people who ate typical movie food. I wanted to hear the movie, not the rustle of the plastic from their snack bags. I wondered why someone does not invent economical packaging that would function like that noisy plastic stuff but be quiet. What do you think should be invented to help make your world a bit more pleasant?

I would invent some kind of spray you could spray at some men and they would just dissappear. I would call it something like ManBgone or ManOut, ManOff, ManAway.

I like that idea, if you can make it...I will buy it. The list is lengthy, but worth the effort of such an invention.

What movie did you see? I would invent something something that we could take that would make human waste dissolve. That way we would never have to get out of the bed in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, we wouldn't have to leave a movie to go visit the little girl's room, and because it would all dissolve, that means the toxins would go right with it. It's more practical than any of my other ideas, : (.

We went to see 'Enchanted' - I don't think it was up to the usual Disney standard but it was worth $2 each..we enjoyed it. I would love your invention, I get up sometimes 2 or 3 times a night and the dogs feel that since I am getting up to go, then they should too..so then I get to stand by the door waiting for them as they wander through the yard. You know your invention would mean that we could get rid of toilets entirely - wow, no more plungers or TP or toilet scrubbing and then men would not have to learn how to aim ...wow... you could win a Nobel prize for this one.

If we are going to have personal robot to do house cleaning...let's think big -- do the laundry; walk, feed and brush the dogs; cook our meals and make shopping lists as well; sew and do mending; painting the walls would be a real plus.

they have a robot that cleans your floors. i think its called a roombot or something you set how far away you want it to travel from its charging deck, and it goes around and vacuums all day long, and when its battery is low, it heads back to its charger and repeats the process. i think its pretty quiet, and i dont know if you need to empty it yourself or not.

Roomba is not cleaning well. I returned my Roomba. It was making noise and was good for my cat to play with, but cleaning wasn't done. It didn't even clean all pets hair. Not mention tiny dust storage. Overall, 3 out of 10 for cleaning, 10 out of 10 for entertaining my cat....

An automatic/robot duster like the automatic vacuum "Roomba" that would at a specified time each week dust the house. That would be a great invention.

I want a robot that does it all - cook, shop, dust, vacuum, laundry, groom and feed dogs, de-poop the yard.

A dog poop vacuum, now that would be excellent! And maybe a little stinky.

Same with me. I hate that noise. It's so annoying. But I don't know how to invent anything. I wish I knew.

You don't have to know how to invent anything, this is just a question for what you would like to see invented. Maybe someone will see your idea and implement it.

"What do you think should be invented to help make your world a bit more pleasant?" I think it's an interesting question, I have a lot of things I think they should invent 1) They can do the most complex robots, why they can't invent robotic arms or legs for people who haven't got any? 2) It's only a dream but I think they should invent teleport. I have a lot of friends who live hundreds of KM from me, it would be wonderful to see them everyday with a quick teleport.

The do have some robotic arms for people that are missing arms, I think our technology is just becoming capable of it and in the future we will see more of them. As for teleporting...that would be cool. I just think how much time I spend in my car, teleporting would give me back almost a nights sleep every week. I could get into that

hahah well i think that i would like horns that would only honk when needed. the drivers in my country are horn obssessed, they honk their horns anytime and everytime they wish too. it is really crazy in our traffic and very noisy! so i wish we have intelligent horns instead...to compensate for dumb drivers.

Intelligent horns, that would help with noise pollution. How come so many dumb drivers? Infrastructure needs work? Bad traffic. BTW - your pooch is cute. What kind of dog is he/she?

maybe one invention i have thought of would be individual earphones or headphones inside the theaters so we won't hear those irritating sound snack packs makes.

That is an idea, but then we might miss the sound effects of many movies. I think maybe eaters should go in a separate area.

I would like something invented that can fold clothes, in my house with three kids it seems like an endless chore.

First let me state I LOVE MY HUBBY. But he does snore. And that isn't what gets me. Lately he makes this sound I can describe as only a nightmare. It wakes me, scares me. Then sends me to the living room couch for some zzzzz's. I wish someone would invent ear plugs that work. Or a silence button for the nose. That way I could snuggle up and not be awake or worse, riding the couch.

oh, I like the silence button for the nose! Now tell me, does hubby believe you when you discuss the volume of his snoring or does he say you exaggerate?

foot rests of some sort for the guy or gal who punchs the back of my seat with their feet. its so annoying and sometimes painful to have someone continually shoving a foot into your back through the theater seat. maybe their feet are tired and some sort of low foot rest might give them the comfort they seek instead of punching me in the back.

Good thought, the child in back of me was also a kicker. I also think a foot rest would make it more comfortable to sit, better for the lower back.

I am fond of the theory about Space & Time, so i think a time machine should be invented so that you can travel through time, I mean we hear many things about past and want to know about the future so what do you say?

I think that would be cool, we might be able to learn the truth about a lot of things...did Oswald act alone, but we should not be able to interact or alter the past.

Ah yes, we all want that magic bullet and eating less does not seem to help a lot does it? I am 100% behind you on this one.

I want a teleportation to become possible. That would make travel much less painful and much faster. I guess we'll only know later if its possible but I couldn't imagine it happening in the near future.
