Angeline: A system where everyone has someone to listen to them, like a therapy chain.

Shannon: I’ve got to go with the replicator from Star Trek. Food, clothing, medication could then be created from energy or matter. Lack of basic necessities for life could be eradicated almost immediately.

Caleb: Alcohol that hits you instantly.

Cameron: A pill so that when you’re going to have a baby, you can take a blue one for a boy or a pink one for a girl.

Anthony: Something to remind each one of us that we are loved and have a gift to share with the world.

Allie: Cars that run on water. Cheap fuel and clean emissions!

Stephanie: Talk to people about God and help them out in any way that I can.

CJ: Probably the Point of View Gun from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Target flawless empathy with the pull of a trigger? Absolutely.

Laura: I would invent a timer on cellphones for kids with allotted time each day. Emergency numbers would always work.

Adrean: An ad campaign for empathy. It already exists, but not enough people know about it or how to use it.

Devin: A virus that attacks mosquitoes and mosquitoes only.

Aaron: A device that clones food and liquid to help feed the hungry and provide clean water.

Jennifer: Cold fusion. Free energy for everyone.

Kim: Something to stop addiction in its tracks. Not to treat addiction, but to prevent it. Maybe something that inhibits a substance from triggering the change in brain chemistry that leads to physical and psychological addiction.
