Mariposa by Greg Bear:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Excellent novel set in near-future America defies my efforts to write a quick summary without spoiling plot lines. Plenty of intrigue, interesting characters and highly likely technologies. Trust Bear, read it. Select an invention:

Dattoo
A data exchange device worn on the skin like a tattoo.

EPR Phone
Telephony that uses quantum effects for transmission - and is therefore the ultimate in anti-eavesdropping technology.

Robot Snake Spy
A small robot in the shape of a snake, used for field work by spies.

Skin Computer
A computer that looks like a tattoo, on a stretchable base.

Zip Paper
Very thin display like a single sheet of paper.
