If you worked for Tony Stark,what technology would you develop ?

If money wasn't a limitation and you worked at Iron Man Tony Stark's Stark Industries
where you could and had to develop any technology to help save the world, what
creatively witty one/s would you develop and please say why?

He had some pretty sweet holographic displays in the sequel; I'd love to see those realized.

A cheap efficient new power source, you know like the one that powers his suit. Oh wait, it is rare and not practical for the general public.


Curse you Hollywood screenwriters!

Any technology to save the world? I don't know if any technology could save the world but I'd put Stark's resources into developing anti-grav technology. Those holograms would be nice too as Gaith stated.

I can't remember the name of it, but after the first Armor Wars, Tony designed a chip that would prevent copying of his tech.

ARC reactors could easily replace power stations and even - with adequate shielding - replace teh internal combustion engine.

i'd be interested to see if they use ARC reactors in Avengers or a SHIELD movie to power the helicarriers...

This. That little reactor in various forms could power a house, a car, an anything. Screw flying around like a super hero. Solve the energy needs of the world.

I'd develop a modified repulsor ray to act as a trash compactor for the nation's garbage dumps so they didn't take up so much space.

Diarrhea Gun. No, its not a gun that shoots feces, silly head, its a weapon that makes its target need to use the bathroom RIGHT FREAKING NOW! It would be marketed as a fast and easy cure for constipation, but basically I would use it on any jerk who cuts me off or as self defense. Even while in the midst of road rage, I realized that I didn't want these inconsiderate or stupid assholes dead, I just wanted them inconvenienced and humiliated to the point of ruining their day (like say shitting your pants unexpectedly while on the freeway).

If I worked for Tony Stark? Probably some pretty draconian DRM.
