Description
Scientists are using robo-insects to study insect behavior. Meet robo-roach-the bionic bug. The days of industrial-looking robots with mechanical voices and dome-shaped heads are long gone. Today, a robot might crawl up your arm, locate a hidden land mine, detect cracks in nuclear storage silos, serve appetizers, or chat with you about tennis.In this intriguing book filled with photographs and detailed illustrations, young readers are introduced to the new generation of robots: there's Mini Andros who defuses bombs, Wanda the robopike - a fish robot who studies the behavior of aquatic mammals - and Aesop 3000, a voice-led robotic arm that helps doctors perform invasive surgery. These are just a few of the astonishing robotic creations that are helping us learn more about our world.
