Favorite invention of all time? 
Since I just got an array on my house, I have to say that solar energy is my current favorite invention (I’m a little obsessive about checking my daily generation online).

If you could invent anything, what would it be?
I’d love to invent a really cheap and efficient alternative energy solution so that everyone could afford to go green.
