Think manipulating DNA is inevitable but the consequences can go either way with huge repercussions. - maybe ( no.5 ) is one of these but this is in a good way with minimal effects. - ( no.8 ) not so sure just ask any old person who didn't really have a good life experience.

Autonomous cars ( no.10 ) can be quite helpful as long as they are allotted/apportioned their own road paths I think.

Eye implants ( no.20 ) for sure.

Exoskeletons ( no.24 ) also high marks - whether manually or robotic I'm sure are already being trialed or given to some military men injured during wars.

The ones I'm interested in are the cheap solar cells, the artificial leaf that can produce hydrogen, super strong silk, the stem cell research to extend the human life span significantly, the invisibility cloak and the self driving cars.

Bah, with the breakthroughs of stem cell research it angers me how long it was held back for by "religious" reasons. Think of all the lives it would have saved, all the money it would save, all the people it would have made happier.
