There is a need for technology that can detect and map out areas that have the existence of flesh eating amoebas in the wild and the environment. This would include some type of advanced sensor grid that would either be handheld or could be incorporated into satellites for advanced detection of multiple types of micro-organisms on Earth. There should also be a cure created for people that contract flesh eating amoebas, because with all of our current knowledge, it commonly requires amputations and drastic surgeries to save the person who has contracted the little critters. This could be some type of bio-engineered structure that attaches to amoebas and kills them, that can be passed through the blood stream as an IV drug.
