This book discusses the origins and development of robots and their use in the present-day world.
This book offers a thorough discussion of the history of robots, including concepts that appeared as early as ancient Egypt and ancient Greece. Also included are ideas that Leonardo da Vinci came up with that were implemented centuries after his death.
The color illustrations and the peach-colored inset comments lend visual interest to the narrative, covering subtopics like "Robot Champs" and "Lying, Cheating Robots". The notes, glossary, "for further information╙ section and index are all helpful. Kennedy, Carol
