The New Technology series is an exciting, up-to-date look at new technology and the effect it is having on the world. Each title looks forward to likely future technological advances that will affect our everyday lives.Today there are already unmanned spy planes, military robots, and stealth bombers. But what new weapons and systems will be around in the future? Will soldiers really wear uniforms that control their body temperature or sound an alarm if they are injured? Will robots be the soldiers of the future? Will robot spies as small as insects scout enemy territory? With developments in military technology, future warfare and defense will be very different.

Ian Graham is the author of Cherished Library, as well as the Danger Zone series, the Mighty Machines series, and the New Technology series.From Booklist:
This abundantly illustrated yet slim volume in the New Technology series looks at the latest developments in weapons and intelligence-gathering technologies. Brief chapters discuss aviation, land warfare, warships and submarines, intelligence, nonlethal weapons, and space weapons. Body armor, exoskeletons, lasers, robots, stealth aircraft and ships, and unmanned spy planes are among the advances profiled. Some of the technologies discussed are currently in limited use, but most are in the development or prototype stages. Regular bulleted sidebars including How It Works and What’s Next? drill further into each topic. The brevity of the text and the vivid visual design of the book will make it especially appealing to reluctant readers, and the appendixes include a glossary and sources for further information. Other titles in the series address new technologies in the fields of energy, the environment, food, and transportation. Grades 7-10. --Ed Sullivan
