title What Inspires Them: Science Fictionís Impact on Science Reality
source ACADIA 09: reForm( ) - Building a Better Tomorrow [Proceedings of the 29th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-9842705-0-7] Chicago (Illinois) 22-25 October, 2009), pp. 32-42
summary The following is an excerpt from my book Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century (Penguin, 2009). This chapter explores how the world of science fiction actually helps to shape the very real human-built environment around us. Besides being one of my favorite parts of the book to research and write, I thought it a particularly fun fit for the ACADIA audience, as it takes us back to the question of what originally inspires us.
