    In The Design of Future Things, best-selling author Donald A. Norman presents a revealing examination of smart technology, from smooth-talking GPS units to cantankerous refrigerators. Exploring the links between design and human psychology, he offers a consumer-oriented theory of natural human-machine interaction that can be put into practice by the engineers and industrial designers of tomorrows thinking machines.

    Lieberoth (lieberoth.wordpress.com) says: "The design of future cars - a view from 2007"
    "The Voice is over BAD, but Don Normand is worse"
    Overall

    If you like to imagine what the future will be like with talking refrigerators, Rosie the robot, and a car named Hal this book will be fine for you. I found the certainty he predicts with arrogant and spooky enough for me to want to move into a log cabin in the back country of Alaska. The most appalling part is when Mr. Normand actually states that design needs to be made into a science. This man has clearly spent too many years in academia sipping whiskey in his ivory tower.
