Milburn’s book recognized in Physics Today
Mondo Nano

 

Physics Today recognizes Mondo Nano, by Cinema and Digital Media professor Colin Milburn, as one of the most intriguing books reviewed in its pages this year.

The year in reviews: Five books that stood out in 2015

Now in its fifth year, the “holiday picks” feature highlights five of the most intriguing books that were reviewed in the pages of Physics Today. This year’s emphasis was on books that are broadly accessible. The most technical of the bunch is probably the 100th anniversary edition of Albert Einstein’s popularization Relativity: The Special and the General Theory, which received an honorable mention. The least technical may be English professor Colin Milburn’s Mondo Nano: Fun and Games in the World of Digital Matter, which explores the history and possible future of nanotechnology through video games and other lenses.
