I’ve got to go with the flux capacitor for time travel. I would go back in time and see my parents meet each other in 4th grade. I would tell my dad to have enough confidence to ask her out and not wait until he is 15. I would tell my mom that yes, he is short, but that’s only because he is young for his grade. He will grow, give him time. I would tell him to drink his milk to he can grow faster.

This was a hard decision! But, I would have to choose the neuralyzer from “Men in Black”. Can’t seem to remember why though. 🤔 🙃

Definitely the Flux Capacitor! Partly because it’s from the finest movie ever made… but also because I’d like to go back to 80’s Los Angeles (I know it’s for time travel and not space but I’d happily take a flight over at 1980 prices). Not sure why but I feel like that place and time would be a good fit for me. Far out!

I have to go with the Flux Capacitor for time travel, too. Funny timing for this question, as I just finished reading The Book of Doors last night (I won’t give any spoilers, but there was definitely some interesting discussion on time travel in the book!).

Lol @Ashtyn C  you are hilarious 😆

I’d go with the neuralyzer from "Men in Black".  Imagine never having to endure the awkwardness of forgetting someone's name, erasing the memory of your latest embarrassing dance moves at the office party, or simply making all those cringe-worthy moments disappear with a flashy little light 🤣.

This was a tough choice indeed. Being a Star Wars fan lightsaber was my first thought, but that would not really be of much use, since there are no Jedi to fight… I mean sith. 

So time travel it is!  I chose that since I could use that to check out some favorite moments in history, perhaps meet some historical figures! I might also go back in time and convince my parent to get som Apple, Microsoft and other stocks that skyrocketed years later.

As a huge Harry Potter fan, I would love to see the invisibility cloak come to life! I feel like a lot of law enforcement agencies would love to borrow it to be a fly on the wall😂

The replicator would save me so much time making dinner!

It was hard not to laugh out loud… I needed more than a like button; I need a laughing emoji, here you go! 😂

Invisibility cloak + pranking your friends / colleagues = possibilities are endless! haha

A real hoverboard would be pretty cool.

There are better technologies than the “invincibility cloak” in Harry Potter but this movie is one of my all-time favorites so I just had to vote for it, plus the invincibility cloak isn’t bad. I’d disappear and spy on my team to see what their doing when I’m not around 😃

I gotta go with replicators from Star Trek. Imagine a world where we no one would ever have to worry about hunger. Where everyone can have access to nutritious food that meets their health needs. We wouldn’t be destroying our forests for more farmland or putting chemicals in to our waterways from runoff.

This one is hard! I’m not familiar with all the movies, but I’ve got to go with the memory implant.
