The New Technology series is an exciting, up-to-date look at new technology and the effect it is having on the world. Each title looks forward to likely future technological advances that will affect our everyday lives.Today our food is already being modified, fortified, packaged, and tracked, but what will happen to our food in the future? Will cabbages really be modified to taste like chocolate, will skyscrapers really become 'vertical farms' and will you really be able to eat three year old sandwiches? With developments in food technology, it is very likely that our food in future will not look the same—or taste the same—as it does today.
