Nymphomation by Jeff Noon:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

A prequel to Vurt, described by Publisher's Weekly as "conspiracy thriller in which math geniuses Daisy Love and Jazir Malik's fascination with Domino Bones, the seductive new lottery, leads them on a labyrinthine biotech romp fraught with fractal propagation, sinister flying and talking advertisements, futuristic rave culture and murder, artificial intelligence-style." I thought this book was worth reading; he has a unique voice. Select an invention:

Blurbflies (Sing. Blurbfly) - corporate gadflies create a buzz
Small robotic/organic advertisers.

Randominoes
Dominoes that randomly generate new numbers.
