The Cometeers by Jack Williamson:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

I have to go with the blurb from a 1967 paperback version:

"a spaceship twelve million miles long, the secret weapon that controls the Universe, a superhuman traitor to all mankind and, defying mortal peril, fantastic dangers, and the dread powers of the invincible Cometeers, the grandest trio of swashbucklers in all of science fiction - Jay Kalam, Hal Samdu and the incomparable Giles Habibula!"

'Nuff said. Select an invention:

Android

Cartograph - a GPS-like trip readout

Geodynes - pushing against the fabric of space

Gravity Detector

Photoelectric Telescope (Photoelectric Eyes) - astronomical pictures produced automatically

Planetary Engineering

Space Warp - first use of this idea

Tubular Field of Force
