Daily Prompt: You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?
I have given this one a lot of thought over the years so this shouldn’t be too difficult.
I would invent an apparition machine! It would be disguised as a pocketwatch so no-one would suspect a thing, but when flipped open there would be a tiny keyboard and I would simply type in the place I wanted to travel, for how long and press the ‘GO’ button. However, it would only have 50 hours of apparition time on it, (so that I didn’t take it for granted), but this would be topped up every year. For example, I could have a 45 minute lunch break in Cuba or have a little holiday in Canada before I went to bed! When the time was up, a tiny alarm would go off and it would send me back to the place I came from. Of course, it would also have a safety mechanism inside so that nothing could possibly go wrong.
If only I had magical engineering skills…
