<b>*DESIGNED FOR KINDLE FIRE TABLETS*</b><br /><br /><b>*NOT FOR KINDLE E-READERS OR KINDLE APPS*</b><br /><br />Explainer-in-Chief David Macaulay updates the worldwide bestseller <i>The New Way Things Work</i> to capture the latest developments in the technology that most impacts our lives. Famously packed with information on the inner workings of everything from windmills to Wi-Fi, this extraordinary and humorous book both guides readers through the fundamental principles of machines, and shows how the developments of the past are building the world of tomorrow. This sweepingly revised edition embraces all of the latest developments, from touchscreens to 3D printer. Each scientific principle is brilliantly explained--with the help of a charming, if rather slow-witted, woolly mammoth. <br /><br />An illustrated survey of significant inventions closes the book, along with a glossary of technical terms, and an index. What possible link could there be between zippers and plows, dentist drills and windmills? Parking meters and meat grinders, jumbo jets and jackhammers, remote control and rockets, electric guitars and egg beaters? Macaulay explains them all.<br /><br /><b>This Print Replica Kindle ebook maintains the rich formatting and layout of the print edition while enabling readers to zoom and pan on the highly detailed images. This advanced format is designed for Kindle Fire tablets and cannot be read on Kindle e-readers (including the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Voyage) or with most Kindle apps (including Kindle for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch).
