Leaving aside the Star Trek style replicator & the Tomorrow People's jaunting belt (yep, I AM that old :lol: ) there are a couple of things I long for, I'm sure ISHers will come up with more.

1)A drawer for washing machines that is streamlined & EASY to clean WITHOUT ripping my hands to bits!

2)An electric ride on mower. If milk floats can be quiet why can't my local council's mowers if they must use the at stupid oclock in the morning?

over to you...

3) Sprinkler heads that work properly and last at least 5 years.

7. Televisions that have buttons on them rather than needing a remote control for operation;

8. 'phones which are somehow attached to the wall so that they cannot (like the *¤@€!!!! remotes) get lost down the back of cushions, hidden by the dog, etc, etc.

You're being far too kind to chavs, Sparki.

11. A chav eliminator.
12. A popular TV programme - "Drown a chav TODAY!!!!".

That should do it.

14. A connection of automated artificial intellegence which would allow global communication and profer advancements in research education and technology on a giant scale, rather than an internet dedicated to Adult Entertainment and people I met 25 years ago updating me on how rich, fit and happy they are.

How about the following:

A perpetual motion machine.

An effective device to prevent cold callers, spam and other things I hadn't requested.

Put your money on perpetual motion. It's by far the most likely.
