Description

Weird and Wonderful Contraptions from Yesterdays Future.

This hilarious book looks back on some of the more absurd inventions that were presented on the popular BBC show Tomorrows World .

Now that we have arrived in the future, and were not wearing silver space suits to work or eating pills instead of food, we can look back with some amusement on Tomorrows World.

Illustrated throughout and structured by theme, the book will recall the best of Tomorrows World occasional successes and frequent failures. The giant, Prisoner-like bubbles we were promised, inside which commuters could traipse across the Thames, havent arrived to solve inner-city congestion. Were still waiting for holographic videophones, cybernautic sheep-shearing devices and flying cars.

With profiles of the main presenters dropped in throughout, critiquing their presenting skills, sartorial statements and science credentials, this trip back to the future has the irresistible pull of nostalgia, but is also a glorious celebration of a very British tradition of Heath Robinson-esque solutions to lifes little problems.
