What needs to be invented?
My wishes include...
A hardware wmv encoder - I have just rendered a wmv from a 6 min DV avi, over 2 hours !
A PCI vegas accelerator with a cell chip - Oodles of teraflops for rendering, come on sony - just do it. Even if it was a grand I would have one in a flash.
Everlasting batteries - no hope there I know, unless you used plutonium.
Whats yours ?
