      Well I could improve it now, I don’t need to go back in time to do that. I improve engineering products every day now. It would be cool if I had invented the electric motor.

      Hey! Well it’s not really engineering-related but I would probably reinvent antibiotics… although they started off really useful, they have also created super-bugs which are resistant to antibiotics :O I would maybe replace them with something able to attack specific bacteria, like bacteriophages! Here’s a cool video about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI3tsmFsrOg
