Maintenance free cars and intelligent electronic assistants that look and act like Carol Vorderman are part of the British public's technology wish list, according to research released last week.
The study, called The British and Technology and conducted by Mori, analysed British attitudes to technology and hopes for future developments.
Almost half the population would like instantaneous world travel by 2009, if technology were not a barrier, found the research, and one in 10 believes this will be possible within the decade. Other items on the wanted list included maintenance-free solar cars and self-cleaning kitchens.
If offered the opportunity to customise their own electronic helper, men's number one choice was one with the looks and personality of TV celebrity Carol Vorderman.
Given just one wish for the future, 34% of people said they would choose world peace, 26% opted for perfect health and 12% said they would like unlimited money.
The report was based on interviews with more than 1,000 adults across the UK, from all socio-economic and age groups.
