Transmaterial

Transmaterial is a book about (mostly) new materials and techniques, and a flick through the free downloadable PDF version sends you into a new world of science fiction phrases: Biosteel, light-transmitting concrete, pervious concrete, Superblack, corrugated glass, rubber pavements/sidewalks, strawboard, conductive plastic, plasphalt, light-emitting glass, regenerative plastic... It's like a 187 page compilation of all those little "look at this cool new thing" blurbs at the start of Wired, but with a thankfully less sassy and more down-to-earth style. (via Ben Hammersley)
