The Wearable-Tech Revolution

Superpower book cover.png

CAUTION! Move Slow & Think Human. There's a wearable tech revolution afoot...and maybe a human one too!

Our world is exploding with smart wearables—computers for our bodies and minds. In this book, young readers will discover how technological innovation can help people survive and thrive, but the book also asks readers to question whether it should. What if super strength results in endless work? What if hackers can read our thoughts? What if virtual reality confuses our brain? Meet engineers, designers, scientists, and young inventors, and hear what they have to say about the pros and cons of wearables and the importance of designing tech responsibly.

To write this book, I met with young inventors, some even your age. Readers, be prepared to be blown away by their passion for designing technology that will make the world a better place and their awareness of technology’s dark side—dangers we should all know about.
