A fandom meme I made up

What 5 fictional inventions would you most like to be real?

1. Portable holes, from certain cartoons. Seriously, how much more awesome an invention could there be?

2. Warp drive! Need I say more?

3. Replicators, like on Star Trek!

4. Prosthetic bodies, like on GITS:SAC

5. Easy, complete sex changes.

I was thinking of Shipstone's little magic boxes (not patented, just locked in a box, an intellectual property model used by Dolby for their sound encoding system).

Actually nanotech matter converters would provide energy at those levels easily.

Re: My personal choices.
Matter conversion is apt to require something rather beyond nanotech. :-)

And please to not confuse energy generation devices with energy *storage* devices. Shipstones were definitely storage.

Of course, the last couple generations of laptop batteries point out that when energy storage density gets high enough the device starts having some really dangerous failure modes.

Batteries that can be turned into bombs will be even less popular than ones that merely start fires.
