From Library Journal
This is a consumer's guide to over 250 useful and time- and energy-saving products and services which will affect the way Americans work and play by the year 2000. They are at present on the drawing board, in production, or already being test marketed. Included are not only serious inventions like voice-activated computers and lenses to help the blind see, but also fun stuff like kiss moisturizers and bikinis which will change color with one's mood. The book gives the odds on availability, estimated time of arrival, price, and explains how each invention works. The text is nontechnical, very readable, and appropriately described as window-shopping into the future. Recommended for public and undergraduate libraries.- Sarojini Balachandran, Auburn Univ.
