Cool Stuff that Should Be Made in the Future

Forget the 1949 cartoon on the "House of Tomorrow" with its automatic sandwich maker. We need real products right now. Here's a list, in no particular order, of things I think we should have today or at least this year:
Women's wrinkle free shirts under $60 - ... That aren't muumuus.
Red nose cream - To transform you from Rudolph to Prancer!
Mood recorders - Is there an app for this?
Condiment deathmatches - My money is on BBQ sauce, but I know any white sauce (including salad cream) will win.
Salad cream? Hell yeah!

Teleport machines
Clothes that wash themselves - We want the clothes to also dry and fold themselves, but inventions follow a cycle of iterations.
Super absorbent movie theater seats - Just kidding. I think they are made this way naturally.
Personal zombie entourage - Wait, isn't that redundant?
Equal pay for equal work
Alerts for dropped calls - Who hasn't said half of their life story before realizing they were cut off half a minute ago?
High water pressure in all buildings - Anything less is unacceptable.

I'll take one of each, but one is actually better than nothing.
