Summary

This riveting analysis looks at the relationship between people, designers, and electronic products. It speculates on how, in the future, cell phones, personal computers, audio equipment, and televisions may merge into one all-purpose tool, blending into the fabric of our homes and offices or even disappearing into our bodies. David Redhead focuses on the role of designers in shaping this brave new world.
