    Default What is the craziest bit of technology you have read about in SF?

    I Know some of you are Science Fiction readers. I know I am, and I have read some crazy crazy things, human quantum computers, nanorobot/human symbiots, permeant sunscreen that changes your skin pigmentation, Sentiant noosphere (still having trouble with that one) and my personal nomination for Craziest bit of technology, a living uber-tree Dyson Sphere (a mass that completelty encloses a sun) with trunks the diameter of Jupiter and leaves as large as North America. I makes Larry Nivens Ring World look like a tinkertoy set. It was in Dan Simmons Rise Of Endymion.

    So what is the craziest technology thing you have read about in SF?

    "And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme,
    To your tambourine in time.
    It's just a ragged clown behind,
    I wouldn't pay it any mind,
    It's just a shadow you're seeing that he's chasing."

    -From "Mr. Tambourine Man"
    by Bob Dylan
