Writing Challenge: If I Were an Inventor

Well, my last challenge was just a joke as it was posted on Fool's Day and only a few people decided to tell us something humorous and funny. However, most of their jokes and pranks were really good. Here are my special thanks to Rose and Bet who posted very funny blogs!

Today, I'd like to propose you a challenge that is not expected to raise a new wave of misundersanding and hatred on EC. Let's calm down and speak about inventions. I hope you have learned some grammar from my tests and explanations and I will be happy if you try using it writing your short stories. So, here is the topic:

If you were able to invent something, what would you develop?

Your stories may be serious, humorous, fantastic, whatever you like. However, you should ground your ideas giving us some specific reasons. You should tell us why your invention is needed. Let's imagine you are writing the doctoral thesis and have to defend your brainchild!

Let's try to be creative and thoughtful!

If your stories are not long enough, I promis to correct them.

Hello Teacher Danny,

My contribution to a writing challenge.

Dear Danny, this time a serious and short contribution to your challenge.

I am curious to read all the contributions of the members here.

Hi, AG! Nice to see you on my challenge. Well, this topic is close to my field, too. You can write about your real inventions if they are patented. But I think it will be more interesting to read about some new ideas or even fatnasies.

Hi, my friends! I am glad you like this idea.

Dear Onee, take your time, it is not a test, there is no deadline at all. I will be happy to read about your invention.

Hello Danny, 

Your topic is about "If you were an inventor", but what "if I am really an inventor" 

I suspect that such topic works with me, because I am a mechanical engineer as some of you knows, and moreover I work in the field of design and the word "invention" is not too far from my field of interest.. Well, I will think about it... 

I would like also to answer Rosemary about her idea also.

In the WWII, Germany succeeded to produce the oil artificially, and the concept now is well known to all countries, but unfortunately it's damn costly. 

Moreover, world now is trying to rely more on renewable sources for energy such as: solar energy, and wind energy...  For example and as I have recently read, Norway or Denmark (I forgot exactly whom) during 2016 succeeded to cover 100% of their need of energy from renewable sources...

however, it's a good idea, dear Rosemary... I hope you can think about other crazy things that you could find in cartoon for example.. Crazy imagination helps sometimes..

Dear Rosemary, I don't mean your writing must be scientifically grounded, but it MUST be grounded by your opinion, some examples, etc. Just try, I will help!
