Time is the Simplest Thing by Clifford Simak:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Another terrific novel; it has an unusual twist to the hard science fiction premise that machines will get us what we want. Shepherd Blaine, who travels to the stars in his mind, runs into someone (or something) he did not expect: an immortal creature who can unlock a new future for humanity. Select an invention:

Butcher Plant - a plant that grows steaks

Dimensino - alien entertainment center

Gobathian - full body healing

Hunting Robe - a very thin hunting dog

Star Machine - explore the stars

Taper - interstellar portable

Transo - teleportation
