Dr Dave Southall   Retired lecturer in Electronic Engineering  MMU


Technological dead ends: ideas that have gone nowhere


So many mind-blowing ideas and inventions have never been widely embraced by Society! Perhaps we might have enjoyed more of the magic of Man’s inventive prowess had at least some of these logic-defying ideas been more fervently pursued. Dr Southall takes a sideways look at the wonders of the improbable.
