Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Publisher/Verlag: Granta Books | How GPS is Changing Our World | A big-think book which tells the riveting story of GPS (Global Positioning System) and how it is affecting our brains, our technology, and our culture, in the tradition of James Gleick and Nicholas Carr | Over the last fifty years, humanity has developed an extraordinary global utility which is omnipresent, universal, and available to all. Neither the internet nor the cloud would work without the Global Positioning System (GPS), a network of 30 satellites and their monitoring stations on Earth, which makes everything from the smartphone in your pocket to precision planting of crops, to the Mars rover possible.Pinpoint tells the remarkable story of GPS, from its conceptual origins as a bomb guidance system and its classified status to its present ubiquity and one of the most important technologies in the world. It examines the different ways that humans understand physical space, from ancient Polynesian navigation, to Western navigational methods to the new frontiers revealed by GPS. A strange and unexpected legacy of satellite technology is its double-edged effect on our culture: while GPS has brought us breathtakingly accurate methods of timekeeping, navigation, and earthquake tracking, our overwhelming reliance on it is affecting our cognitive maps, leading to the increasingly common phenomenon 'Death by GPS', in which drivers blindly follow their devices into deserts, lakes, and impassable mountains.Deeply researched, inventive and with fascinating insights into the way we think about our place in the world, Pinpoint reveals the way the technologies we design to help us can end up shaping our lives. It is at once a grand history of science and a far-reaching book about contemporary culture. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 391 gr | 234x155x23 mm | 336 pp. Nº de ref. de la librería K9781847087089

Descripción GRANTA BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over the last fifty years, humanity has developed an extraordinary global utility which is omnipresent, universal, and available to all: the Global Positioning System (GPS). A network of twenty-four satellites and their monitoring stations on Earth, it makes possible almost all modern technology, from the smartphone in your pocket to the Mars rover. Neither the internet nor the cloud would work without it. And it is changing us in profound ways we ve yet to come to terms with. Pinpoint tells the remarkable story of GPS, from its conceptual origins as a bomb guidance system to its present status as one of the most important technologies in the world. Yet while GPS has brought us breathtakingly accurate methods of timekeeping, navigation, and earthquake tracking, our overwhelming reliance on it is having unexpected consequences on our culture, and on ourselves. GPS is reshaping our thinking about privacy and surveillance, and brings with it the growing danger of GPS terrorism. And neuroscientists have even found that using GPS for navigation may be affecting our cognitive maps - possibly rearranging the grey matter in our heads - leading to the increasingly common phenomenon Death by GPS , in which drivers blindly follow their devices into deserts, lakes, and impassable mountains. Deeply researched, inventive and with fascinating insights into the way we think about our place in the world, Pinpoint reveals the way that the technologies we design to help us can end up shaping our lives. It is at once a grand history of science and a far-reaching book about contemporary culture. Nº de ref. de la librería AA99781847087089
