    Of the ones on the list: nuclear fusion. Because any new technology we make requires a power source.

    And not on the list? FTL travel.

    I would like to pick teleportation and maybe time machine, but I don't think it would matter because these things won't ever be on the market as it would make trafficing drugs and whatnot way easier, so it would only be used by /kept secret by whichever country invents it or shared between countries' secret organizations

    Teleportation would be great, but if everyone could do it and it was free, the whole worlds economy would probably collapse.

    This may spark an argument but I want to talk a little more about the Eternal Youth Potion or anything that results in immortality (or even simply cures most diseases).

    The population as it stands is already overbearing on the planet. Eternal Youth potions or even anything that abolishes disease would be our downfall. Sure we can put in laws that restrict how many children people can have, but it's a global epidemic and it will be impossible to control this for everyone. China did it for a while and for good reason, but it's over now and you could see how many extra deaths they had from families killing their daughters to try for boy.

    I don't wish for pain, disease, or for anyone to die, but the fact is that it's a way of dwindling the ever growing population. Finding the cure for cancer would be amazing, finding the cure for everything would kill us.

    Other: Zero Point Module.

    Stargate watchers/fans will know what i'm talking about. ^_^

    It's a device that draws vacuum energy from an artificially generated pocket of subspace, providing massive amounts of clean energy for an exceptionally long time.

    Best part? They're disposable! They're the universes most potent double A battery! XD

    Eternal youth elixir.
    Sure the earth may become overpopulated for a few hundred years, but there are many other planets and moons in our solar system, and I have no doubt that we will in time populate them. Given enough time the other technology on the list would become available, and things like FTL travel would open up the rest of the universe and the population problem would become void.

    Time travel would be pretty awesome. I've heard a lot of stories about awesome things some of my older relatives (who died before I was born) did back in their younger days and always thought it'd be cool to meet some of them.

    It's not a problem if cold fusion existing, its a problem of making it work on a large scale to power our cities in a cost effective manner.

    I picked teleportation. Would be nice to just teleport somewhere instead of taking the long trip. I wanted to pick dream recording too, I've always wanted to actually watch what I was dreaming because I forget most of it. I would also like hover vehicles and space travel.

    Data jack like from Cyberpunk or Shadowrun. Don't know about something? need to know how to do something at an expert level, jack-in, or slip a data chip in your data slot and "know it".
