How many times a day do you connect to the digital world?

You text, tweet, stream songs, watch videos, and play games, but do you know how it all works?

Leap inside to discover the technology behind the coolest gadgets and meet the people with the big ideas. Find out what robots are up to, how a video game is made, and how the Internet affects your life.

Marvel at the technology that keeps you connected, from the ships installing lines deep in the ocean, the robots locating wire breaks, the satellites beaming signals across the earth, the teams retrieving and splicing lines together, to the servers directing and feeding internet traffic around the world. Plus, take a look back at the history of the internet, exploring the people and inventions that led to its creation and tour a virtual museum to see how the technology has progressed over the years changing the lives of ordinary people everywhere. From Goodreads.
