Israel has rejected the borders of a future Palestinian state the U.N. endorsed last week and on Friday, Israel announced it would press ahead plans to build thousands of settler homes. And it is punishing the Palestinians further by withholding more than $100 million in taxes and other funds collected on their behalf. (AP Photo/Hatem Moussa)

Some pretty great things were invented in 2012. The world was recently wowed by mind-controlled cybernetic limbs, reusable rockets and Google Glass, just to name a few.

And yet, with the calendar about to roll over to 2013, there are still a few things we wish our inventors had time to tackle this past year. Who wouldn't want, for example, a computer that talked back to you like a real person? Or automated medical checkups? Or a dinosaur clone?

OK, that last one might be a little dangerous. That said, it's among the seven things we'd love to see invented over the next 12 months. Some are truly life saving; others might be just fun. All are worth thinking on, and we at HuffPost Tech are eager to hear what you think. Take a peek at this slideshow and then tell us in the comments or tweet @HuffPostTech. What do you think still needs to be invented?
