“Physics of the Impossible” dives deep into the cutting edge physics to see how the technology of the future will shape our world. Michio Kaku reviews various speculative technologies which include invisibility or even time travel. He classifies these technologies into three classes, where class I belongs to the technologies which do not violate the known laws of physics and are possible to reach, class II gives the technologies that on the edge of known physics, whereas class III gives the list of technologies that are not possible according to the known laws of universe (perpetual motion for example). And finally at the end of the book Kaku discuses the consequences that such technologies could bring to the humankind.
