The Godmakers by Frank Herbert:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

This is another book that people love or hate; either it's an unreadable mix of religious heresy and nutty politics, or it's a fast-paced and imaginative story with a huge political scope that talks about the infinite potential of the human spirit. Go with the latter, and read the book. Select an invention:

Atlotl/Gibiril Regimen - regrow and rejuvenate

Crechepod - full life support

Go-Buggy

Implanted Tranceiver - totally hands free phone

Mini-Sneaker

Polawindow - change lighting instantly

Rotating House - turn the salon

Selectacol - automating interior design

Transmit-Paper - first use of this idea
