The Dosadi Experiment by Frank Herbert:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

An exceptional novel; this book introduces many races and characters. Dosadi is an experimental planet, where individuals from different species are forced into a pressure-cooker environment that either kills them or radically expands their capacities (it may remind you of Manhattan - it's even surrounded by a poison river). Will the people of Dosadi be loosed upon the rest of the complacent universe? Select an invention:

Alien Zoo

Armored Clothing - modern armor

Bedog - a comfy canine

Caleban Contact - listen to the stars

Daily Schedule (DS) - intelligent day planner

Graluz - breeding pond for frog people

Grapple Tracks - auto parking

Network Monitoring Detection - why the slowdown?

Odalarm - aromatherapy wake-up call

Personality Simulator - game your office politics

Skitter - electric carts on Dosadi

Sonabarrier - keep the vultures out

Swimming Tubes - water-filled for frog people

Taprisiot - galactic long distance calling

Taprisiot Monitor Bead - last chance to surveil

Tracked Vehicle - better than Hummer

Transmitter Eyes

Uniflesh - skin for every occasion

Zoo Fences - made of acid
