Dying of the Light by George RR Martin:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Excellent novel set on Worlorn, a rogue planet that is terraformed by a dozen cultures, each building a distinctive city for a festival that will last as long as the planet is warmed by the suns of the system. A love story plays out in clashing cultures. Select an invention:

Chameleon Cloth - great camouflage

Darkdawn City - the venue is musical

Glowstone - great at parties

High Kavalaan Aircar - superbad SUV of the air

Rogue World

Sky-Scoot - flying foils
