Description
 
If you’ve ever wondered why X-ray machines can “see through” a body or what information is contained in a UPC bar code, you’re in great company! The author is fascinated by the technology that surround us, and he explains it all in simple-to-understand language, including CD burners, solar cells, yo-yos, & animal camouflage. In this follow-up to the well-received “How Stuff Works,” Marshall reveals more of the magic behind everyday stuff with dozens of original articles covering everything from webcams to wildfires, solar eclipses to surge protectors, & rainforests to restaurant pagers. Contains clear, concise explanations of more than 125 topics from icemakers to instant messaging; & hundreds of full-color photos & illustrations that bring the content to life.
