If you could make a magic wish for a futuristic gadget or high-tech innovation, what would your item do?

Hey Red Pen – you got your question picked!
I want a Replicator. I would like The Enterprise and Jean Luc to go with it, but lets not be greedy. Too greedy. I just want a Replicator.
Steak, rare, with fries
Green Salad, well dressed
Lobster Thermidore – yuk, take it away.
Roast Lamb with Rosemary Roast Potatoes, greens and mint sauce.
Goan Fish Curry. mmmmm. More please.
Rice Pudding with cream.
Ice cream with clotted cream.
Cheese and Biscuits.
Maybe if I hadn’t had to cook, every day, for at least five people for the last 18 years I might have picked something more – altruistic. Like, I don’t know, sticking plasters that do not leave a horrid residue on your legs, or self propelled supermarket trolleys. Feminine Hygiene products that never ever leak or lipstick that never smears and doesn’t feel like gloop on your lips. A Remote Control to mute the children…
Damn. Just the one wish, huh.
I had best stick with The Replicator then.
Or was I supposed to invent one? Cos if so, I am going for the Self-Propelled Supermarket Trolley. It wheels itself round the supermarket, follows you to your car, or to your house if you are walking, then takes itself back to the supermarket car park storage depot for trolleys without causing an accident.
