What will they think of next?

I will be 31 this month. I was thinking about all of the things that have come into existence in my lifetime. Here are some of them:

the PC, internet, cell phones, CD's, UPC scanners, mini vans, car seats, the ROOMBA, over-the-counter Ibuprofen, jelly shoes, laser pointers, call waiting, three-way calling, conference calls, VIDEO conferencing, dry erase boards(?), baby monitors, travel systems, VCR's, microwaves, walkmans (or is that walkmen?), inline skates, the George Foreman Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine, Saran Quick Covers, rubber spatulas, Jello Jigglers, home video cameras, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Clapper, rap, touch-tone phones, answering machines, air conditioned cars, LCD's, air bags, anti-lock brakes, liposuction, magnetic card "readers," swim diapers, home satellite dishes, the Dustbuster...

There are so many more. What else can you think of that has been invented in the last 30 years?
