We asked each person to name the one device they wish somebody would invent. The results range from the highly imaginative to the mundanely useful. One executive wished for a “fountain of youth” pill, while another wished for a simple, cheap means of water desalination, a technology that could transform the lives of millions of the world’s poor.’
