Publisher's Synopsis

This is not a history of technology but an account of the ways in which technology has impacted upon the development of human culture: from the Labyrinth in ancient Crete, designed to hold the monstrous Minotaur, to the militarized command and control systems of today. In it we encounter Edison's talking dolls, the 'dream architecture' of world fairs and movie sets, Japanese comic books and thinking machines, sex researchers, zombies and cyborgs. Hollings explains how our relationship with media and machines is far more dynamic, unstable and stimulating than imagined.
