Flying cars, light swords, space colonies, humanoid robots, cloned dinosaurs, death rays, cyborgs, invisibility, faster-than-light travel; the staples of science fiction are increasingly being seen as achievable, given enough energy, the development of key materials and technology, and advanced understanding of the physical world (and ourselves). Rod Pyle explores 25 such sci-fitropes—some tantalizingly close to being realized—in this illustrated guide, with labeled blueprints showing just how these vehicles, devices, and enhanced living beings might one day be part of our daily lives.
