    I couldn't name them all. I really wish I live to see the day for atleast 3 of these things to come true.

    For me it would have to be:

    1. Alien Contact
    2. Space colonization
    3. An alliance of all nations of Earth.
    (For that I would expect some major global catastrophe that would make us set aside our differences, whether it be religion or politics, and work together as a species.)
    4. Cure for cancer and many other types of diseases.
    5. Robots
    6. Cloning of extincts animals
    7. Cloaking/shielding/inivisibility
    8. Lasers

    Bless the Science Channel for sparking my interests in many fields of science :D

    Damn how could I forget flying cars!? :lol 

    I think flying cars is an innacurate term kinda. Technically flying cars are planes. We can advance in flying-technology (Which we are) I'd imagine something similar to the V-22 Osprey. Something that takes off like a helicopter and flies like a plane.

    I think alien robots with lasers from a space colony that can become invisible, cure cancer, and clone animals will bring about a catastrophe that will bring the world together, personally.

    Time travel would be sweet, but... I don't want to get into all the physics and the what-ifs of messing with the past. I'd like to see if humankind can ever reach Mars. Or alternatively, whalers on the moon.

    And lightsabers. Real ones.

    They have the Laser not as powerful as the TV shows, there's robots all over this planet(mainly in Japan) but most are prototypes, they've been working on personal Cloaking devices(thank Harry Potter, seen a special a while back), and they're trying to clone a Mammoth(again another special talked about it).

    I'd like to see clones of ourselves fully grown and not as a baby. Just have 20 or so of me running around that'd be awesome as hell. I'd also like to see us find some sort of life in outer space, I don't care whether or not it's a carcass or still alive I just want to know there's something else out there. Also time travel the way I see it being possible would be sweet.

    Zombies. I want to be on my death bed, and if I choose to have children, I want them in the hospital with me when the news comes on talking about the epidemic that has just broke out, I will then turn to them and say "You are so screwed" and then I die.

    This, particularly the first three, just screams Star Trek. "BEAM ME UP, SCOTTY!"

    Personally I want:
    1. Space Travel (faster than light)
    2. Colonization of other planets

    Virtual sex that feels 100% like the real thing, so I can have sex with many different girls without cheating on my wife (not that I will ever cheat on her). It's a kind of device that will cut down if not eliminate infidelity.

    A PC that doesn't require use of keyboard or mouse and instead allow your brainwave to operate.

    Cure for cancer (why the hell not?)

    Robotic servants

    Internet that you can go in and do things using your virtual self (without use of keyboard or any other device. It's like physically going into a virtual world and do anything you can in real life, only it's not real)


    1, 2, and 5 are pretty much one and the same. I'd love to have another world that you can go to and from from the safety of your home. It'd be almost like the movie Matrix. Almost.

    A Gundam that can walk at a steady pace and make basic movements.

    That is all. And a giant beam saber in it's hand wouldn't hurt :D .

    Almost there.
