Description

Robots are everywhere!

Robots can be found in our homes, hospitals, and schools; in books, movies, and computer games. Robots are at work, at play, and even at war. Robots are even out of this world, helping us explore space. This photo-packed book explores the rise of robots, from the first automata (lifelike mechanical figures that acted like humans or animals) to the latest AIs (Artificial Intelligence robots). Learn some bot basics, how robots on the move know where to go, sociable robots with facial expressions, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) that chase hurricanes, nanobots that can be injected into a person's bloodstream to fight diseases, and much more. As you flip through the pages of this bold book, you'll discover the many different designs that have captured our imaginations and led to amazing developments in technology. You can even learn how to build your own robot!

This is a look at their rise: how they've developed over time, from early sketches to terrifying battlebots and factory operatives, to the latest AIs running free from their workshops. Presented chronologically, this robot history explores landmark robots that have captured the imagination, including creations from popular culture.
