What are the best inventions ever (in your opinion?)
What still needs to be invented?

I can’t think of the best invention so far but the one which would impact the most on the world would be a cheap and easy way to make sea water drinkable.

Something that stores up all the heat produced in the summer and all the freezing produced in the winter....and then uses all that heat to warm you in the winter....and uses all the freezing stuff to cool you in the summer....

I was going to invent a novelty watch once....

One day, I was asked the time twice....The first time I looked at my watch and said something like 'Just coming up to 12 o'clock'....and the second time was something like 'just gone half past four'

So the watch was going to be something along the lines of not using the conventional numbers and things, but to have an actual marking of 'just coming up to' or 'just gone'...and all sorts of other sayings eg 'in between 10 past and quarter past' etc...

So if anyone asked you the time, and it was exactly on 'just gone half past four' ....then that would be spot on, but if it was 'just coming up to' just gone half past four....then....that would be exciting...

I felt sure that everyone would want one....just for the novelty...

But I haven't had time to do it....Has anyone got the time?

prosthetic limbs

Something yet to be invented/discovered:

Cure for the Man Flu?
That's it, that's what we need?

I was free from the Man Flu all last winter, but respect to those who suffered.

I like TW's watch idea, a talking watch, a rude talking watch.
