Darwin's Children by Greg Bear:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Very likable revist to the same near-future Earth as seen in the earlier book Darwin's Radio. The book is largely independent its predecessor; it concerns the scientific and social consequences of the next stage of human evolution. Lots of drama and action; a lot to think about if you are interested in what makes us human beings. Select an invention:

Automated Sentry - automatic face recognition

E-paper Hologram

E-Sheet - disposable LCD displays

Ideator - gene identification

Little Bird - surveillance drone (UAV)

Speaker Chips - talking books

Specimen Track

Touch Tablet
