Where's My Jetpack?: A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future That Never ArrivedMeet roboticist Daniel H. Wilson co-author "Where's My Jetpack?: A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future That Never Arrived," a hilarious look at the future imagined through movies, television, and comic books. He reveals which technologies are already available and those that do not yet exist - explaining what stands in the way of making them real.It's the twenty-first century and let's be honest - things are a little disappointing.

Where are the ray guns, the flying cars, and the hoverboards that we expected? What happened to our promised moon colonies? Our servant robots? - Books Inc.moreless
