Summary
There are many vital technologies that science fiction not only predicted, but also helped bring into being. Through lively narration and lavish illustrations, this book presents technological developments and explores the writers, futurists, and far-sighted inventors whose visions became realities, from the direct influence of H. G. Wells on the atomic bomb and the tank, to the ambitious prototypes created by inventors ahead of their time, such as Nikola Tesla's remote-controlled drone ship
