  3. I still dream for an invention where we can travel all over the world using Star Trek's "Beam Me Up" technology. No more traveling for hours and hours in the plane just to go somewhere!

  6. @Ayie,
    Won't be too dangerous for wheelchair bound users, I think. After all, their speed will not be too fast.
