Superpower? The Wearable-Tech Revolution

Orca. Oct. 2022. 112p. Tr $24.95. ISBN 9781459828278.
Gr 4-8–Technology is all around us; some of it can even be found on us. Devices are being created to improve our lives, from smartwatches to smart tattoos. What’s cool is that these technologies can sometimes make it seem as if we have superpowers. While there are many positives of wearable technology, there are also negative points. Kachala explores different types of wearable tech, their creation, and their pros and cons in this resource guide. Readers will be familiar with some forms, while others will likely be brand new. Broken down into clear chapters with an index, this is a readable guide for valuable information on the subject. Kachala presents the information skillfully for her target audience. Fun illustrations and photographs are scattered throughout the book to support the text. Likely to fall flat for those already indifferent, those who are interested or need research sources for a school assignment will be satisfied. A glossary and list of resources are included in the back.
VERDICT Purchase where STEM books are popular and are needed for school assignments.
