Celebrate your inner geek with 20 fun and easy projects.

The future was once a beckoning landscape where technology would make all things possible. Space travel! Robot maids! Personal jetpacks! Mind-controlling ray guns! With Knits of Tomorrow you can celebrate this ideal world-that-never-was with original and creative projects that will appeal to any techno-geek-or those who knit for them.

Knits of Tomorrow features a wide range of projects, all with a technological bent. They are mostly quick and simple-toys, accessories, and home decor items such as rocket-ship desk caddies, circuit-board scarves, and a robot pillow. There are practical projects as well-tablet covers, laptop bags, and iPod cozies.

The playful and fun projects are primarily aimed at an audience with a nostalgic taste for sci-fi, video games, and electronic gizmos past and present.
