Starfish by Peter Watts:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Remarkable first novel does a spectacular job of exploring two dark worlds, both teaming with gigantic yet insubstantial monsters, under great pressure, the place where energy from deep below the surface can bring light and materials needed for growth. Yes, I'm talking about - deep sea rifts. And that other place we all share. Well worth reading. Select an invention:

Diveskin - wetsuit for the deep rift

Eyecaps

Face Seal

Head Cheese - cultured neurons in a dish

Lucid Dreamer - it's a dream machine

Medical Mantis - telefactoring device for physicians

Neuroinduction Field

Recycler

Smart Gel - brain in a dish

Sonar Pistol
