A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

What's one specific, concrete thing humans don't have now that you would like to see us figure out while you're still alive so you can say, "Hey, wow, look there, we figured that out!" (I think I'll take the most blindingly obvious answer to this off the table, because otherwise everybody is gonna say, "Cure cancer.")

Some transportation mechanism that isn't going to kill us with pollution and global warming.
