If you could bring any Star Trek tech to this world... ?

Excluding ships, if you could bring one of any Star Trek tech to this world what would it be?

I was going to go with a dermal regenerator due to the fact that I stub a toe at least once a month, but I'll go with a universal translator.

Universal Translators - If I listen to a rap song would I hear "For shizzle" or "For sure"?

Transporters, easily. No more traffic jams or drunk drivers; no more hijacked airplanes; no more cruise ships run aground. And a lot less pollution.

A replicator can replicate a universal translator.

A replicator can replicate all the parts for a transporter. And it can replicate the assembly instructions like a Lego booklet. Or Ikea (although this will leave you with several pieces left over - "What did they give us two pattern buffers for?").

Therefore replicator is still the best choice. :P

That would imply, that all existing Trek technology is programmed into the replicator as you bring it into this world. The purpose of this thread, as I understand it, is to choose a single technology. Thus if you decide to go with replicators, they should be "blank" and only be able to replicate what you can program into it. Otherwise it´d be like "if I had a wish, I´d wish for ten more wishes". And that´d be terribly boring

A cloaking device for the car would be mischievous.

Personally I wouldn't want to give earth warp technology. I don't think we're ready to use it wisely.

If we "waited to use it wisely" for every technology that came along we'd still be waiting to use clubs and skins.
