Using todays popular interactive toys as signposts, including the Furby, LEGO Mindstorms, and the Sony PlayStation 2, Pesce takes readers on a dazzling journey into the near future, where the entire fabric of the material world becomes manipulable, programmable, and adaptable. Vast in its implications, wonderfully detailed in its examples, The Playful World succeeds as a work of accessible science and dazzling cultural inquiry.
