"The award-winning Canadian writer Margaret Atwood has, in her
time, dreamt up some spectacular visions of the future. Now,
instead of imagining tomorrow's technology in all its gruesome
forms - such as the genetically modified monstrosities of her
novel Oryx and Crake - she has invented her own device.

Atwood is developing a remote book-signing machine that will
allow readers to get their novels autographed without the author
having to traipse to bookshops across the globe. The idea
occurred to her while undertaking gruelling tours with Oryx and
Crake last spring. "
