The ability to regenerate and repair organs with advancements in stem cell technology.

And even the ability to create whole new organs with an individuals own dna for transplant. Has already been done with some very minor uncomplex organs. In a few decades individuals in need of heart transplant can replace it with a younger version of their heart grown from their own cells.

As for the earlier lists, I have a hard time putting lawn care at a higher priority than food production.

You will never have an internet that can't be hacked for the same reason you'll never have banks that can't be robbed or a nation that can't be bombed or an election that can't be rigged. There will always be a profit motive for finding a technology that exceeds the defense. Until you withdraw so many human rights that people can no longer compete with Big Brother. You don't want to go there.

The most rudimentary of third world nations already have a perfect election system. Everybody can vote, and they put black ink on their thumb when they've done so. What's the problem?

Faucets that safe drinking water runs out of seems more important to me than faucets that don't leak. (We had those once before. What happened to them?)

Mostly things to help the blind, people walk and soldier's rehabilitation.
A year or so ago, I saw a man walking with two prosthetic legs. I've never seen anybody who could walk that fast, or with such long strides. I was amazed.
