Physics of the future : how science will shape human destiny and our daily lives by the year 2100 by Michio Kaku

Imagine a world where you can telepathically control your home. Where cars are driverless and magnetic, and the internet is in your retinas thanks to special contact lenses. Imagine a space elevator that takes tourists up to the moon and human-controlled robots that make dangerous jobs safe. Organs can be grown on demand and you look 31 when you're actually 61.

Imagine all this, and much, much more, because it very well might be possible in 2100.

In Physics of the future, renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku offers a wondrous vision of our future, referencing technologies that are in development today, or will be in the not-so-distant future. Interviewing at least 300 scientists about their work and theories, he creates a picture that is at the same time mind-boggling as it is believable and inevitable.

Don't let the words 'physics' and 'science' turn you away! This book is readable, engaging, and not just for fans of science fiction or technology.

When she does read, it’s two or three books at the same time: a few chapters here, a few chapters there and a few more somewhere else. Sucheta likes dystopian sci-fi, contemporary fantasy, satire, young adult and the occasional classic.
