Future invention point system game I'm creating

Postby Maximum7 on October 2nd, 2017, 9:48 pm 

I am making a game where each future science invention gives you 5 points. Once you accumulate to 100, you win. Each 5 points unlocks a new invention.

Here's what I have so far

+5 James Webb Space Telescope
+10 Quantum computer
+15 Fusion reactor
+20 Fusion rocket

Does anybody have any cool, creative invention ideas for +25 to +100? I'm looking for out of the box stuff. Everything that I have is too generic.
Also if you could, could you arrange it like I did in a vertical list with the plus sign and the number. Thanks

Quieter more efficient airplane engines and ocean propellers/engines.

Guns with GPS devices that only allow the gun to fire on your home property, and retinal scan devices that only let the registered owner fire it, and only fire it at non-family members.

"High-Temperature" Superconductors
+ 5 Liquid Nitrogen (as current) but with double current capacity
+ 5 Liquid Nitrogen (as current) but malleable, like wire, prior to cooling
+10 0°C, any form
+25 30°C, any form
+50 100°C, any form

+10 Harvesting Lightning (alternative energy)

+10 Ultra capacitor with energy density (joules/gram) competitive with current Li-ion battery

+10 printable carbon fiber (nanotube) sheets (+5 more for 3D)
+15 printable graphene sheets (+5 more for 3D)

+100 nanotechnology (fully programmable for manipulation on a molecular level)
+75 abiogenesis (creation of life from non-life)
Well... I would rate them this high because of far reaching implications. But then I would rate a fusion reactor and quantum computer as significantly higher as well, +25 at least.

That last part might be asking a little bit too much. Something to make guns effectively childproof would be great, but then you already covered that with the retinal scan. Furthermore, it is not so uncommon that women, in particular, are buying a gun for protection from family members. And then, LOL in a zombie apocalypse, killing family members might be crucial.

Damn, I'm always forgetting to plan for the zombie apocalypse! Hopefully, the nanotech revolution will allow rapid zombie reversal kits that make shooting unnecessary. Or perhaps the ultra-capacitor that Faradave wishes for will lead to zombie shocksticks that dispatch them neatly.
