This is a terrific book! Published in association with the Science Museum, Futureworld takes a look at today's technology and assesses quite how near we are to realising our science fiction dreams. Beautifully laid out throughout in full colour, this is exactly the kind of book that you give to a ten year kid who becomes inspired to grow up to be Einstein. Recommended.
"Made up of one hundred entries across four theme - space, time, machine and monster - this is an authoritative guide on how much of the fiction has already become fact and what it may still be possible to achieve in such areas as time travel and the discovery of alien life"
