Rings of Quiet
Noise cancellation would be very good with smart matter. Imagine a film of smart matter that can adjust its shape: sound hits one side and sets of a shockwave travelling at the speed of sound. Individual units in the film measure their compression and transmit that information via light (outracing the shockwave) to units further along. These units then actively behind to move in the opposite phase, cancelling out the incoming wave and absorbing it as energy.

Some will leak onwards but several cycles (and thicker membranes) will further reduce.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
