13 Magical/Scientific Inventions I Wish Existed To Make My Life Better

Thirteen Things about RG

1. A sentient shower/bath that magically removes all unwanted hair from my body-pain free and easy

2. A personal transporter {really really want this-and I think people are working on it}

3. Neuro-downloader-okay it needs a cooler name but think Matrix. Every language {Gaelic, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Greek etc}, quantum physics…kung fu-just there in an instant. That would be lovely. Sigh. As long as crazy squid robots weren’t after me and I didn’t have to shave my head.

4. Holodeck-okay I really like Star Trek technology. Can you imagine actually playing the heroine in one of your own spicy stories? I could definitely see myself getting addicted. I would so have Crystal Jordan’s Wereplanet series as a regular program. ;)

5. Time Travel device-research would never be the same. Imagine spending a week watching the Pyramids being built, finding out what really happened to the people at Roanoke, or seeing if Atlantis did indeed exist? Heck-for a writer-the purchase would probably be a tax write off.

6. I have read many a scifi romance that gave the heroine lovely beauty products-things that automatically changed your hair color, eye color, heck even your breast size. I’d like one of those for my hips. Oh and makeup that wouldn’t run, smudge or come off until you wanted it to. ;)

7. A magical device that gave you the ability to know when people were lying. People can fool a regular lie detector, plus you can’t carry that heavy thing around with you everywhere-it would be awkward. Oh and it would show everyone in the nearby vicinity that that person was lying-maybe it would automatically dye them a sickly green color. Just imagine-politics would never be the same.

8. A replicator that made the most delicious food you could imagine but took out all the unnecessary fat and calories. {Would end world hunger AND everyone would look fantastic in a bikini}

9. A spell that would cure all diseases {all human, animal etc-thank you Crys-very good idea-I feel better thinking of others lol}

10. Hammer Space-You know those cartoons where some guy gets angry at another guy who is being absolutely ridiculous-and they pull a giant rubber hammer out of thin air and bop that irritating person upside the head? Sometimes I want that…is that wrong?

11. Star Trek again-Roddenberry was a genius. A Universal translator. Except I would include within its capabilities animal-speak and baby talk.

12. Dream recall machine-like a camcorder-only it records your dreams while you sleep and you can watch them unfold like a movie when you wake in the morning. That would be interesting.

13. Finally-a watch that can slow, stop, or speed up time. Dangerous I know, but occasionally-if you are enjoying a quiet bath or waiting for an email that is taking forever-it would be a good thing to have handy.

LOL! These are great. Number one becomes an even more essential need after 40 and weird hairs start sprouting on the chinny-chin-chin. Thank all the gods for tweezers! Damn those german genes.

Yes, #1! I want that right now :) I wouldn't mind being able to enhance the old chest line with the push of a button either.

I would give rather a lot for #3. Wouldn't that rock?

No more TBR pile for me, I tell you.

Toss up between 1 and 2. I've toppled over 40, and yeah, sudden sprouting! I remember being a kid and seeing my mom plucking chin hairs and thinking, my mom is some kind of freak! And yet, here I am!

Love to travel, but hate the getting there part. So number 2 would be awesome as well.

Great list!

Thank you for your comments guys-My link thing went wonky today-I really need to get a Mr. Linky! I'll have this all figured out by next week I promise lol

Dude, not trying to be rude, but the heroines in my Wereplanets series would so take you for their even looking at their man. Make sure the programming on that machine is PERFECT or you'd be in troooouble.

Blogger R.G. ALEXANDER said...

Yes Crystal-that's why I would program it so I was the heroine. I am not willing to fight your tough chickies. :}

I would love one that takes care of aging and sagging.

Oh and time travel and traffic-avoidance would be lovely too ;-)

Awesome list!

RG - if you figure out the linky thang let me know - i finally gave up on it a while back. Btw - you are now Official Kick Ass Ninja Chick. Now i just gotta find the dang black belts...

My pragmatic side makes me wonder about the repercussions of some of these devices. For the transporter I'd hope there was some sort of shield that could keep people from popping into my bedroom or whatever.

I don't think I want to know when people are lying. For court, I think that would be awesome, but in everyday life, I don't know.

I think holodecks would offer far too great a temptation for me and maybe for a lot of people. If your life sucks, you could lose yourself in a fantasy world, and how unhealthy would that be?

Okay, I'm going to stop because I'm being a blog bummer. LOL

ROFL at #10. I'd be tempted to use it all too often, I fear.

(BTW, I'm still trying to figure out Mr. Linky too)

Oooh, I'd love to be the heroines in my stories. That would be so wicked cool!

And thanks for reminding me I need to go grab the tweezers. *sigh*

Heh, I'm so there with you on the instant hair removal thing. I've been using one of those epilator things. Dayum they hurt! :)

Let me know when you get that Hammer space. I want one too!

What a fun list! I'd love to be able to know when people are lying. The food replicator would be cool, too...

What I wouldn't give for a holodeck! Imagine, instead of just writing a novel, we could write holodeck programs?? How cool would that be?
