Stasis Booth

I occasionally see news about an advance in medical technology for putting people in stasis, or at least stabilizing them in an emergency until medical treatment is possible. While this is important, the real money in this technology is selling stasis chambers to parents.

Think about it. If you're a parent, you know what I mean. Sometimes you desperately with you could press "pause" on some remote control and just catch your breath for a minute, or at least get a good night's sleep. So on those days when you're about to lose your cool, you just put the kids to sleep in the stasis chamber until you have a chance to calm down.

The downside, of course, is the temptation to use it too much and grow old and die before your baby is in first grade. But I still think it would save the sanity of many a parent.
