This would be earth-changing awesome, I wish I knew the tech that could get us there in my lifetime.

The one that's been on my mind is tuna. In a few decades what's left of them will either be too toxic or too expensive to eat much of. Further out, there are probably going to be sustainability issues with most types of meat. But there are worse things to lose...

Televisions. They'll probably be replaced by either smart glasses or become something more like a wall replacement. Maybe they'll call them dynamic walls or something less cheesy.
