    • this book is the best you can read about technology that will soon arrive and the one that is being created from how it works to how it works.


    • Cool Stuff 2.0 was really an interesting book. When I first saw this book, I thought that it would be really boring because of the title had 2.0 and that is kind of nerdy and "Cool Stuff" sounds like something an eight year-old would say. Then, I remembered that you should never judge a book by it's cover, so I opened the book. What I saw was amazing! There were the coolest things like the Gecko Pad, which lets you climb up any surface and you stick to it, and then there was the Falkirk Wheel, w [...]


    • I am currently reading Cool Stuff 2.0 and How it Works by Chris Woodford and I am enjoying it a ton. So far this is probably one of my all time favorite books along with the first book (cool stuff and how it works) in this series. I can really relate to this book because I have some of these items or have designed something similar (but haven't made prototypes yet) for example I have designed a flying car that uses the same technology as the floating bed and I have Lego Mindstorms.

    • While I have no talent for science I find it fascinating, and this book takes the me inside our cool technology and shows me how it works. For a non-science newbie like me it's a fascinating curiosity but I could see it being an inspiration for a techie child or teen to try a S.T.E.M. career.

    • From how a jackhammer or a laser works to scateboard simulators to robots that can read and react to human emotions, to a mechanical cat that farts air freshener, here is the inside scoop in full color.


    • There were so many cool things in this book. Some freaked me out so much, but some were just awesome how they work. I love the world's highest arc in the Grand Canyon. Since I'm afraid of heights, I wouldn't dar to go on it. I just found the material and facts about it really fascinating.




    • Have curiosity about a range of things they workBioplastics to BodyflightAwesome book that will engage upper elementary and middleschool readers. Or someone like me!



    • Fun to read because it's full of information, photos and futuristic things. Great for a kid like me (9 yrs old)
