might take to get us there.Tasha Robinson, NPR.org A wild glimpse into a future that may or may not involve space elevators and brain computer interfaces and programmable matter Kelly and Zach Weinersmith sift through mountains of literature and pick the brains of the researchers at the forefront of things like bioprinting like 3 D printing, only bio and augmented reality like reality, only augmented , turning a skeptical yet exuberant eye toward the technologies of tomorrow.Matt Simon, Wired Beautiful ForbesFans of science, math, or medicine gamers and those who love the weird and wonderful will gravitate to SOONISH School Library JournalAn entertaining look at future tech wizardry, from space tourism and asteroid mining to nuclear fusion power, matter replication, synthetic
