    The Diamond Age: Or, a Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson

Decades into our future, a stone's throw from the ancient city of Shanghai, a brilliant nanotechnologist named John Percival Hackworth has just broken the rigorous moral code of his tribe, the powerful neo-Victorians. He's made an illicit copy of a state-of-the-art interactive device called A Young Ladys Illustrated Primer. Unfortunately for Hackworth, his smuggled copy has fallen into the wrong hands.
