Take a detailed look at the fascinating world of robots - from the earliest single-task machines to the advanced intelligence of robots with feelings. Young readers will be amazed to learn all that robots can do: perform delicate surgical operations, clean city sewers, work as museum tour guides, or even battle each other in combat. Find out how humans have created these mechanical minds and bodies.
This was the first time I'd ever seen a DK Eyewitness Book, and I was impressed. This was one of the robot items being gifted to a 6-yr old. Even though he doesn't read yet,it'll be a book for him to grow into. For right now, his Daddy can read him the text, and he can look through at the pictures himself.
I was pleased with the book quality and price.
We have since Leonardo's da vinci, time been fascinated and interested in replicating and building who we are complete with movement and accessories.Fiction in the form of reality,for humans has proliferated into frankenstein truth, with which we have always been obsessed in our neverending,quest to duplicate or create,our own species. Humans have always been an, unstoppable force in creating these mechanical minds and bodies.We started from scratch in building the simple single task machines to the more advanced intelligent robots with feelings. Robots is a book that readers will be amazed with full of detailed illustrations, photographs and multiple sources of information.As common today as robots are in the past they still are futuristic in design of appearance,with which is still,a frightning thought, because they behave as unexpectedly as we humans do just like in the terminator saga.Robots are incredibly powerful machines programmed by incredibly smart minds to do single or multi tasks that humans can't do continuously.I have always enjoyed DK books they are informative educational but above all fun, to read for my son and i, and I would recommend, Robots to anyone interested in the future of mechanical gadgetry machinery.
This book is a great reference book for beginners collecting robots or interested in robots.Very brief but helpful information on robots. We enjoy going back & forth to refer to old & new designs.
This might be the most informative guide to the amazing world of robotics!
The author, Roger Bridgman, stays true to form with the design and layout of the DK Eyewitness Book Series by challenging young readers, ages 9 to 12, to "SEE, LEARN, & DISCOVER" the stories that provide an "eyewitness" account of how robots are changing our world. The content and layout are reminiscent to popular encyclopedia series, except this series engages the reader to think outside the box. The bits of information may seem trivial at first glance, but upon further reading, children will find there is more than meets-the-eye. This is a great book which will serve as a stepping stone for young children who want a well rounded account of robotics from yesterday, today and tomorrow.
The illustrations and photographs are credited to multiple sources - all of which enhance this books educational value. Kids who are visual learners will appreciate the realistic photos and diagrams which work nicely with the text and page layout.
Professor Hsosheng Hu, at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Essex, was consulted before this book was published. The authority and knowledge of Professor Hsosheng Hu is a major advantage point for this series.
First of all DK Eyewitness books are wonderful, beautiful pictures and just enough info for the beginner, makes these books my first choice all the time. I bought this book for my son and daughter along with a robot erector set so they could dabble a bit in robotics. My son has been collecting robots since he was young, the old tin wind up sort, he is hoping for Robosapien this Christmas. This book will give him more info on robotics, a science that is really growing.
