Next-Gen Prototypes That Need To Become Reality, Like Now

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

We're living in the age of crowdfunding, when literally any wild invention can become reality, with enough backers. Because of that, inventors are creating breathtaking prototypes at a rate that's impossible to keep up with. So we took it upon ourselves to dig up prototypes for amazing inventions that haven't become reality, but should.

This contest was suggested by Bakudai, who lies awake nights yearning for a transparent toaster.
