More weirdness from the WU archive:
Radio Sunglasses, 1967
Swimmer Eats While Floating, 1938
Mongoose uses anal camouflage to catch prey
S/F has been dreaming up stuff for over a century! Jules Verne wrote
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
in 1,870. A Czech writer coined the word 'robot' around 1920.
What gets me is inventors rarely mention them and literary critics dismiss the whole field.
