This booklet is the second edition of a resource produced by the Foresight Commission in the late 1990's.  The idea of the resource is to take everyday applications and consider the how advances in materials have helped to improve the technology we rely on.  The areas covered in this booklet are bicycles, sports materials, packaging, sensors, biomedical implants, electricity, aircraft, lighting, telephones and exploration.  In addition it also features information on manufacturing processes, classes of materials and their properties and other sources of support.
