“Smart shirts” that adjust sleeve length in response to body temperature are among the hundreds of new products we might expect in the next decade or two, according to the recently published Catalog of Tomorrow. Not confined to a preview of consumer trends, the book attempts to peer into the future, with an emphasis on growth areas in science and technology.

Many of the topics covered in the catalog have a direct connection to our daily lives. How will cars be constructed for greater safety in the near future? What changes can we anticipate in exercise during the coming decade? The Catalog of Tomorrow provides answers to these and many other questions in its four major sections. Here you will find topics ranging from gene therapy to nanotech (Our Tools), digital paper to cyborgs (Our Lives), privacy to cyberterrorism (Our Society), and biodiversity to deep sea exploration (Our Planet).
