Star Trek Replicator.

- Synthesizes food, clothing and natural resources
- Synthesizes tools
- Synthesizes drugs
- Synthesizes polymers, proteins and organic matter
- Synthesizes brains for the 99% of the population that doesn't use theirs
- But won't synthesize weapons or nuclear material

But providing brains would be the priority here.

:)

This seems redundant.

I believe that the implication is that this new brain will have a burning passion to learn and be used so the brain will use itself unlike 99% of the existing population's brains.

OR

It is a brain that has a burning passion to take orders from people who can give commands so the intelligent simply rule the stupid. Sorta like district 9.

The microwave from Back to the Future II that instantly cooks and enlarges food. Mainly for pizza.

Now here is someone that DOESN'T need their replicator to replicate themselves a brain! Well done! :)

Thus putting most of us out of work. (since 90% computing field is centered on entertaining the abysmally stupid so they don't cause too much trouble)

Computers are enough of a nuisance to deal with. I don't really want to spend my time programming stupid people as well as stupid machines.

I think most people's brains are just fine - it's just that they've been mishandled. With proper care and feeding, the human brain generally does have a a burning passion to learn and be used. This is why it's so sad to see the mindless droids wandering the streets glued to their entertain-o-trons.

Sadly this is true. :(

I've always, always, always wished there was a magic food generating machine.
This is even better. :D Running out of pencil lead sucks!

But I'm also totally behind teleportation. Less time commuting = more time playi---I mean studying!
