If you could invent a gadget, what would it do? Are there any gadgets that make your life easier?
Hello, a fucking teleportation device!!!!
I hate driving! I hate airplanes! I hate trains! I hate cars! I hate boats! Teleportation would make my life so much easier. I don't know the science behind it all but how is this not possible already?
Think about it. Instead of train stations and airports and bus stations, there are local, state, national and international teleportation stations! It would be more cost-effective, better for the overall environment and it would reduce the amount of traffic drastically.
The local station would have a system set up similarly to a subway or a bus station, you get a pass that allows you to teleport to different parts of the city you're in. It would be so much better because of instead of having to take 2 different buses that stop at every stop just to get to your job 20 minutes away, you could just select the nearest teleportation station to your workplace and go!
The state teleportation system would get you from one large city to another or to whatever suburbs and small towns have a teleportation station set up in their area. This would be kind of similar to like the Greyhound or Megabus system ya feel me? National teleportation would operate more efficiently but similarly to a train station or an airport. You buy a pass online to get to whatever destination within the continental US (unfortunately Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico count as international travel).
The international teleportation station will be set up like a massive international airport with several hundred mass teleportation devices set up to take as many people to one location as possible. I imagine teleporting organic molecules across the ocean is a lot harder than across land so international travel would be a little more expensive and time-consuming than the other teleportation modes.
But still waaaaaaaaaay better than dealing with TSA and long lines and baggage claim right? Plus I'd get to see my family and friends back on the other side of the country more often!
Maybe Elon Musk can stop being an annoying, useless, braggadocious, hypocritical dick for one minute and get to work on my brilliant, genius idea?
