Already, such inventions as the iPod and the Nintendo Wii have become a commercial phenomenon and it would be hard to imagine life without them. This new book describes 50 of the most interesting inventions of the century so far, from around the world, providing an engaging insight into the thought processes behind inventors work. Using the original patent illustrations Stephen van Dulken paints an illuminating picture of the modern world.
