we can possess the advanced technology for observing without collapsing the wavefunction. it is possible. it doesn't exist yet, but it can exist. our grandchildren could be using them and not us but it's possible none the less.

There is a problem here. Once the wavefunction is observed, by anything, even by a photon or by an electron, or a device, then the wavefunction collapses to one of the associated probabilities. A device that observes that does not collapse the wavefunction, would be one that does not do any observation. The mere act of the device's observation is the one that will collapse the wavefunction.
