Description

Have you ever asked yourself how the inventions, gadgets, and devices that surround us actually work?

Discover the hidden workings of everyday technology with this graphic guide. How Technology Works demystifies the machinery that keeps the modern world going, from simple objects such as zip fasteners and can openers to the latest, most sophisticated devices of the information age, including smart watches, personal digital assistants, and driverless cars.

It includes inventions that have changed the course of history, like the internal combustion engine, as well as technologies that might hold the key to our future survival, including solar cells and new kinds of farming to feed a growing population.

All the way through the book, step-by-step explanations are supported by simple and original graphics that take devices apart and show you how they work.

The opening chapter explains principles that underpin lots of devices - from basic mechanics to electricity to digital technology.

From there on, devices are grouped by application - such as the home, transport, and computing - making them easy to find and placing similar devices side by side.

How Technology Works is perfect for anyone who didn't have a training in STEM subjects at school or is simply curious about how the modern world works.
