  1. I am writing one of my first science fiction stories, and have benefited greatly from brainstorming groups before. I would be awesome if we started a thread where we just throw around ideas for advancements that could be found in a futuristic world. It's incredible how starting a discussion about something sparks ideas and opens roads that you had never noticed before. Recently, I've been playing around with the idea of weapons that target the nervous system. This technology could be expanded in thousands of different ways, but I'm focusing more on pain enhancement aspect. Think about it, if we had guns that activated pain nerves, we could quickly incapacitate people, without doing any real physical harm. This would be a great help to the police and really any other enforcement agency. It could also be used in a couple of negative ways... What do you guys think?
