      Ohhh interesting question….
      I would have to say that I think it’s possible to use treadmill, package delivery rails and hydraulics to make a movable floor so that VR gaming and work outs would be hyper-realistic.

      What would you choose?

      Take the internal combistion engine and make it pollution free by using another source of power which is not a hydro-carbon ie. petrol or diesel.

      That’s an interesting and difficult question which I’ll give a simple answer to: a computer. It may not be the answer you were looking for, but I think that it’s almost impossible nowadays to invent something completely new without using a computer at some point in the process, whether it’s for modelling and simulation, testing, or training (in the case of machine learning). Of course, you can always use computers to design better computers as well!

      I’d probably use a 3D printer to print out parts to make a completely new invention but not quite sure what the actual invention would be though.
