If money were no object and limitations didn't exist, what one gadget would you invent?



I put that mine would be a Dreams Visual Recorder ...but then I thought a way back machine would be good as I oftne wish I could see how things were at a distant point in history.

What would you invent?

An invisible camera that could be used in a way that didn't make it look as if you were using an invisible camera, just for candid street photography.

Perhaps you could also include a fast forward button on the machine:

...you get to my age and you're 'gonna miss all the all the great stuff that will happen in the future.

.....and the bad things too Smile

A force field shield which would surround me so that I could go out anywhere, day or night, and be safe from attack or harm.
Oh, and it would be weatherproof too.

Paradox free Time travel, to allow the best of all times all the time. Oh and a Selfishness removing filter on it so that it would be good for all and not just you.

But if time truly is a dimension, changing the past would only have an effect on the present if the whole chain of causality was repeated. Let's say time is like a film reel. If someone was to change a few frames that have already passed through the gate it would have no effect on the film as seen by the audience until the film is rewound to just before the change and played again.

Or, put it another way. If I was walking through a featureless desert and decided to mark where I have been with a trail of pebbles so others could find me and then someone secretly moved some of the pebbles to create a 'false' trail, I wouldn't suddenly find myself inexplicably transported to some random location. I could only get to the random location if I was to go back to my starting point and follow the false trail.

So, no paradox. Smile
