Remember: This discussion question is worth a possible 20 points. Late answers will receive 0 points. Points will be assigned according to the thoughtfulness of your answers, not by whether they are "right" or not, since sometimes there is no "right" answer.
If you could invent anything you wanted, what ONE THING would you invent?
- Note: this cannot be something that has already been invented.
- Think of something you wish existed and then "invent" it. Don't worry about whether you have the technical know-how to do it. And don't worry about whether it would be "impossible." Let your imagination go on this! Anything is possible in your imagination! Just say what you would invent and why you think it would be great for it to exist.
- Your answer should be 2-5 paragraphs long. Be sure to include plenty of details so we can understand your invention and how it would be used.
When you respond to other people's answers, be sure to post a response of substance, which adds new details or ideas to what they've said, or asks questions for clarification. Don't just say "I think your invention is great" or some variation on that. Really give some thought to what the other student has said and see what you can contribute.
