    I'm making a futuristic invention game where each invention equals 5 points. Once you accumulate 100 points, the game is over and you win. While this may seem similar to two other of my threads, the inventions Overmind One gave were funny and nice, but a little too silly. I'm looking for more serious ideas. Here's what I have so far

    +5 James Webb Space Telescope
    +10 Quantum computer
    +15 Fusion reactor
    +20 Fusion rocket

    Does anybody have any good ideas for +25 to +100? All ideas are welcome (the more creative the better), but nothing too silly. If you could, please list them how I did. Thanks

    I bet you could get tons of ideas from the people here. But I am a bit....intrigued....that you are trying to get people to share their ideas with you. You even call them "inventions", which again is....intriguing.

    The first time you came, you said you were doing it for a class, but you were asking for invention ideas. Then the last message you were asking for inventions but wanted 25. Now, you are wanting more ideas/inventions but it's for a game. You have already invented the Inventor Hunter. :) So, what becomes of all these ideas that you collect from here (and probably elsewhere)? Although you are not violating any rules we have here (yet), this amounts to soliciting. I am very sensitive to this sort of thing and so is my brother. We have both had ideas stolen from us and then commercialized later by somebody else who did not give credit where due.

    There is a reason "creatives" are sought out. ONE unique and marketable idea can lead to billions.

    I just do this for my own enjoyment. I gather ideas and don't use most of them and then I keep an occasional two for the future. I'm not trying to turn a profit. I can't even get an agent for my sci-fi children's book

    We had another author here as a regular for years, but she has taken a different direction. Scifi Children's book? Sounds interesting! You can publish it on Amazon without an agent. I think we'd all like to know more about you, what sort of stuff do you like, your interests? Comments on shows or movies, or just random stuff. Many of the ideas you are looking for are already here in various threads. The Tesla thread you started is pretty popular.

    I love sci fi! I'm a HUGE Star Wars fan and my dream is to one day write Star Wars stuff
