The Media Lab: Inventing the Future at M.I.T.
by Stewart Brand
Publisher's Description
"The rapidly converging technologies of recording, broadcasting, film, and publishing are in the process of redefining the entire field of communications media. New media are being created which transform the human abilities to express, to learn, to communicate. At the Media Lab are intelligent phones that can chat with your friends, disembodied faces of real people that gesture and converse, interactive video discs, life-size holograms in midair, television sets that comb the networks and assemble programs that reflect each viewer's interests, and glimpses of computerized `virtual reality.'"--the publisher. As if that weren't enough, a hologram decorates the jacket of this book.
