With the rapid advances being made daily (or perhaps HOURLY), what new invention just leaves you gobsmacked speechless, only to say "wow"?

Here's my submission:

I'm impressed, but I'm also pondering how that would work on a bad mood day, when door slamming seems to be family competition!



WOW, yes. And *shudder*.

Ha! What a silly thing, cool, but silly.

Ever seen Wall-E? It's a kid's movie, but the portrayal of humankind was kind of a reality check for me.

My biggest nightmare is that technology is going to close all our libraries..no more paper books, and that would really be upsetting. Creeeepy!

I remember when someone we both know first told me he was working on a project that would enable the choice to put a rfid tag (chip) inside any newborn, and I freaked!   

This is so close to being a reality now, and then all you have to do is scan to see if a child is yours - see? Wish this had been around when he was born, I might have switched the chip.  

It is incredible what science is working on these days, just incredible, and I wonder if my Mother said that?  I don't think so, the t.v. was our first big new invention.

You truly started my day with a laugh about the door-slamming comment!

Think hard enough, and the doors might break.

But it got me to thinking about thinking, and what it might do for elderly people who are not prone to going into a nursing home...

what a WOW indeed!
