Science Week – DNA analyser/fixer is the invention I want to see most in the future

Science week takes place this week. Damien Mulley alerted me to the fact that they are running a competition each day.
Todays competition focuses on what invention you would want to see most in the future. Having grown up reading Michael Crichton and William Gibson I would love see a device that would analyse your DNA, detect illnesses and cure them. This would take place in the space of 1 hour and would be creative commons/ open patent so that it would be made freely available to all people and nations.
This may in the long run cause problems with longer life etc but it would help to cure horrific diseases like bowel cancer.
