Fueled by Gary D and Nick_Uk threads best and worst invention:

What would be mankinds best future invention?

Would it be a cure to cancer, the ability to regrow limbs and organs or would it something like a time machine? :confused:

My vote goes for interstellar space travel.

Somthing like a micro wave that cools drinks in seconds.

A safe non poluting fuel that can be used by all.

A holodeck. :D :devil:

Brain transplants, but do you keep the name that went with the brain, or the name that went with the body?

Gonad transplants, is the father of any children, the doner or the recipiant. Who does the CSA chase?

A bag of crisps that constantly fills itself up after being polished off. It would have to be salt and vinegar kettle chips.

The replicator for me.

Transporter; do I want to be destoyed and then have a copy created somewhere else? I don't think so.

Time travel; such a silly concept. It will never be possible. If you travel 10 miles to work do you travel minus 10 miles to get home? No; you travel 10 miles again.

Perfect home cinema.
It would feature :-
Perfect sound - with all speakers expertly set up to your preference.
Perfect picture - no lag, smearing, logo burn, pixelation, edge enhancement halo effects etc. It would also have perfect colour, contrast, depth, etc.
Perfect connectability
Perfect DVD recording with no lessening of quality and the ability to do perfect editing to the exact frame - while recording other stuff at the same time.
Recordings would play perfectly on all formats and never deteriorate.

Time travel is theoretically possible according to Einstein. We just don't know how to manipulate space-time yet apart from observing gravity at least.

Einsteins theory (now considered proven) was to do with the slowing of time as you reached lightspeed. Not actually jumping to a future or past that has happened.

The impossibility of time travel is easily proven. How many people from the future have you met on your travels. Don't tell me, the guy who invents the time machine will also invent the invisibility cloak :)

Fairly basic this, but I would like a return button on my Sky remote (same as I have on my Echostar) so that I could jump to the last channel watched and switch between the two

That's coming with the Nintendo Revolution.

My vote: something that would stop orange juice tasting foul after you've just brushed your teeth.

You wouldn't be able to observe someone visiting us from the future as they wouldn't exist!

As one reaches light speed or orbits above a massively dense object. When you return to where you were, time has elapsed more quickly (relatively) so effectively you have travelled through time.

As you approach the speed of light time slows for you in relation to what you left behind, it goes something like that if you had a son back on earth and went on a trip at the speed of light round the universe, he could be older than you.

EDIT writing mine whilst GG posted his.

We are all travelling 'through' time, we just can't go back in time.

Time is a simple method of measuring the difference in the position in space of all objects and matter as they move through space. It's much easier to ask "where were you yesterday at about 2:30PM?" than it is to say "where were you when this object was there and that object was here?" etc. Both accomplish the same answer if everyone knows where all things are, and have been. Since we don't know this we use the measurement system called time to indicate the previous position of things.

To go back in time you would have to return all matter and energy to it's original state and position. Since that would include you and what you are you would have no idea that 'time travel' had taken place.
