Thanks, Kit.

I always enjoy articles like this -- some great and much-needed inventions . . . and some just plain silly ones.

Thanks Carole, best of all these inventions actually work. You can buy a car/plane for less then $200,000. As they catch on the prices will go down.

Thanks for the interesting article. Some look stylish, some are so "cute."

Thanks Kit. This is an exciting article. Some of the inventions look quite hopeful, but a couple of them are downright frightening. Human created cells and Frankenfish could present unforetold dangers and should not be introduced into the open environment until longterm studies can be done on how they interact with the natural environment.

Noted, thanks Kit. The mosquito zapper sounds great. Better not let my hubby see the car/plane or he will want one.

Did Steve Jobs sponsor this article? I can see no other reason why the iPad stands at #1 in this list...;-)

Wish I had a dozen so I could open a Taxi service down on the border!

This is a great list. It covers the spectrum from practice to whimsical.
Talk about fodder for discussions.
