Future Tech illustrates and explains the most current research and technologies that promise to change our lives dramatically in the future. From machines with the ability of independent thought, to cars that drive themselves, to robots that borrow their nature from nature itself, this book gives young readers an inspiring glimpse of possibilities within their lifetimes. Budding young scientists will be awed to learn of "spray-on" computers that could one day outfit us in smart clothes; every young mind will be psyched to encounter humanoid robots like Cog and Kismet; and how cool would it be to one day have tiny robots enter the bloodstream to clean up our arteries? The book’s high-quality photos and drawings explore...

   • The future of technology: how will robotics and biomimetics shape our world?
   • The future of medicine: how will prosthetics and transplants change our lives?
   • The future of transportation: what will run the cars of the future—or will we travel by some other means?
   • The future of family life: what can we expect from the super-smart house, office, and school of the future?


Future Tech will fast-forward readers into a time of incredible innovation and change. This fascinating latest addition to the National Geographic Investigates Science series is way ahead of its time.
