Summary
Has the high-tech revolution enhanced or inhibited our quality of life? This selection of NewsHour segments reveals examples of digital technology applied in both beneficial and potentially destructive ways. The program focuses on LED-based lighting, state-of-the-art sports training, nanotechnology for hydrogen fuel cells, and the computer-aided reconstruction of King Tut's true appearance. It also looks at what some experts say are cases of technological overconfidence-such as computerized voting machines and the American military's proposed National Missile Defense System-as well as the dark menagerie of worms and viruses coursing through cyberspace.
