Summary
COI synopsis: Science has given time a different meaning - what was once the work of years is now achieved in days; days are reduced to seconds. This issue looks at a few of the developments which are helping to make this an instant world. A miniature synthesizer - with a roomful of electronics crammed into a briefcase - can give you instant electronic art: patterns, colours, shapes, all controlled by simple pins and switches.
