Where’s my Jetpack? A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future that Never Arrived, by Daniel H. Wilson

Prof. Wilson looks back to the Buck Rogers, Star Trek era with its imagined technology of flying cars, ray guns, hoverboards, robots, moon colonies, jetpacks and the like. He explains which of these are available in some form now or why they have not been developed. Some of the development problems are economic, some are the fault of those pesky laws of physics. A fun and interesting read, I listened to the audiobook.

RATING: * * * A good read
