Zone for Kids: What would you invent?

First place
I would like to be a scientist one day so I can invent the Water Washer. It is a machine that turns salt water into fresh water. You would get a bucket of salt water and pour it into the top of the machine. As the salt water is flowing through the machine, the salt is filtered out and fresh water come out. Ninety-seven percent of Earth's water is salt water, 2 percent is ice and only 1 percent is fresh water. This is why my Water Washer is going to be very helpful. My invention is going to help human beings because we need more water to live and to grow crops.

If I were a scientist I would invent an intricate machine that makes clean new oxygen and also plant trees, plants and beautiful flowers. Since the population of people in the world is increasing, oxygen is decreasing. People need some way of getting more oxygen, fast.
I would take cells from plants and rearrange the cells to work with metal. It is like brain surgery - if one thing goes wrong the plant dies. If I wouldn't invent this, our children's children's children's children would probably have to grow gills. With this invention we would only have to refill it every 1,000 years. Although it is twice as fast as producing air than plants, plants are a huge part of our earth. Plants are what protect animals. Plants make our whole world colorful. We can't forget about plants even when there are 50 of the Airomatics in the world.
I think I'm going to go invent now. Goodbye! See you when I'm famous!

If I were a scientist I would invent a cure to diabetes because my best friend has diabetes and I think he would love to know that he wouldn't have to check his blood sugar about every hour. Plus my invention would save many lives. Also inventing that cure would open a door of opportunities to all the diabetic kids and adults. I love to see other children playing and not worrying abwwwwwout their diabetes.
I think making that invention would help other kids my age accomplish their dreams. Oh! I forgot to tell that the cure would stop type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The invention would be free because of the economy crisis. But the cure would look like a tiny pill that says on it "Don't worry." So that's what I would invent.

If I were a scientist, I would invent a light bulb that didn't need to use electricity. The earth is running out of electricity and the economy is bad. People are taking electricity for granted, and one of these days, the world will go dark when Jesus comes. We need to reduce, reuse and recycle more often. Some people throw away electrical parts. I wonder where they put it and if it is a good place to put it.
Lots of people litter and pollute more each day. Inhabitants of the world need to think more about turning off the lights when you're not in the room. If we saved more electricity the earth would be a better place. Unfortunately, few people, about 5.3 percent of the whole world, actually save electricity. For these reasons, I would invent a light bulb that doesn't rely on electricity.

If I were a scientist I would invent a time machine. I would invent a time machine because people might want to go back in time and fix their problems. People also may want to go back in time because they changed their mind in a big decision.
I would make it look like a big circle with steps in front and when you power it, it would be all colors going in a circle like a big lollipop. Unlike ones in the movies, it also has a seat for when you go to your time. It would not have many wires, but only one. You can only stay at your time for one or two days, then it zaps you back and you can't go back until one day passes. You can even go back and watch how God made the first person!
Anyway, I would invent a time machine, once again, because people may want to go back and start all over in doing good deeds.

I would invent a machine that would clean the smoke from factories. We really need an invention like this because smoke can cause pollution. The shape would be an hourglass and it would be the color grey. To make my invention work you would tightly secure it to a smokestack and when the smoke tries to get out, the top closes, then little tiny vacuums suck up all the bad stuff and it gets put in tiny containers filled with nutrients. The nutrients blend with the bad stuff and the bad stuff turns into good air. When the nutrients run out, a worker puts new ones in.

If I were a scientist I would invent a clover detector. A clover detector is a device that helps you look for four-leaf clovers and then you can even have more luck than ever. With all that luck you could wish for money, for sick people to get better and for the homeless to get homes. What would you do with all that luck?

If I were a scientist, I would invent a solar powered teleporter. The reasons I would invent it is so it saves everybody time and money and might stop the recession. It would also stop the use of cars and stop the ozone layer from going away and stop Antarctica from melting.

If I were a scientist, I would invent a capsule medication that would bring cancer to an end. When a cancer patient is registered for chemotherapy, they could just pop this capsule into their mouths and swallow it three times a day instead of radiation. And in just a few weeks, the cancer would disappear and the patient would go home. I would do this because I feel bad for the cancer patients who everyday go into a radiation room and begin chemotherapy. This is why I could create this.

If I were a scientist I would invent a money-maker machine so I could help the economy. I would help the homeless and the people who are about to get homeless. I would get the things that my family needs and all the people need. I would be the best scientist ever.

If I were a scientist I would invent a swivel chair like Thomas Jefferson, but better. It would have a Wii, a book on a screen, computer and a plasma TV. I would also invent a robot that's a tutor because I do have trouble in science. This tutor would be the smartest, the fastest, plus it will be my servant. Maybe if I invented it right now I could be admired by everyone at school. Also I could maybe make things better than Thomas Jefferson. The reason I might be a scientist is because my mind is full of creative things.

If I were a scientist I would invent flying shoes because when you walk to school, you can fly to school. I would make it in different sizes for babies, people who have big feet like 14, 13 and 12 sizes, and for pets. So when you walk your dog, you can fly with your dog, too. You press a blue button on the tongue of your shoe. For pets the owner would have to do it.
The second reason why I want to make flying shoes is so you can have fun. You can go really high. You can go up to the clouds. You can fly to school. Won't it be fun that you can fly and go really high with flying shoes? You can sleep with your flying shoes. So if I was a scientist I want to make flying shoes.

If I was a scientist I would invent a time travel machine. It would have intricate details. It would have many different colors. It would also have a security system so anybody with a bad cause to go back in time it would not let them.
I would want to invent a time travel machine because it would make me famous. It would also help mankind. It would help win wars, and stop them before they happen. Making a time machine would change time and space itself.

If I were a scientist I would invent a basic shrink ray. I would invent that because of all the possibilities it can make. First, you can get into places never before explored. Take mouse holes for example. A lot of us want to know what's in there. Could it be mice everywhere or just a few? How deep or long is it? With a shrink ray we could answer a lot more questions than that.
Second, it could lead to bigger, better inventions, more knowledge, and a lot more storage space. We could send somebody into the human body and find out even more than what we already know. If that happens, we could maybe find a cure for even cancer. We could find out that if we could do more to heal people. Once we find our more about us, we could make more effective body armor and protection for our soldiers. The possibilities would be endless.

If I were a scientist I would invent an animator ray. It would be able to turn anything or anyone into a living, breathing, moving cartoon character. I don't know how it would be useful, but it would certainly be fun.
For example, it could turn a mouse into a talking character similar to Mickey Mouse. It could also turn a drawing of a character you made into a living creature. Wouldn't that be cool?
Like I said earlier, I don't know how this would be useful, but wouldn't it be interesting to see how a rock would act if it could walk and talk? Or even to see what a cat would say if it could talk. That's what I would invent if I was a scientist.
