6. Wonkavision (aka, a way to transmit a giant candy bar/boys named Mike Teavee through the airwaves and have it/them arrive via your TV, but still be real) 5. Fizzy Lifting Drinks
"You're talking about Star Trek technology: breaking up the molecules and then shipping them through the airwaves. It could be possible maybe 500yrs from now. What it would cost to do something like that! If they just want you to buy the candy, they should pay some guy minimum wage to deliver it."
"Fizzing things like Alka-Seltzer use citric acid and baking soda to produce carbon dioxide, which is heavier than air. They used Alka-Seltzer in the movie. You couldn't make anything that would actually lift you up without it killing you." 4. Everlasting Gobstopper
"In the movie, it was developed for children in poverty. Ironically, a company [Ed. note: Wonka!
] licensed the name, and now you can buy Gobstoppers, but the "everlasting" part is not feasible. The Gobstopper itself is being sold, and as you eat away at them, they change colors and flavors. Things are made not to last. Car tires and stockings could
be made to last forever, but then there'd be no reason to manufacture them. In an organic chemistry class I took, they said the government has a rubber that never wears out and a nylon that never would tear. But why would you put that on the market? You'd only buy it once. Disposable products are the key to greed in this country."
