Robots by Clive Gifford
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As we enter the digital age, advances in technology are turning robots that were once pure fantasy into real artificial beings that can walk, run and talk like human beings. Robots vividly portrays and illustrates the complete spectrum of robotics, from the earliest design sketches through to the high-tech humanoid robots of today and beyond. It explains how robots work and uncovers the mysteries and wonders of robot technology used in industry, medicine, space and in the home. Intended to create a truly interactive experience. Removable items such as concertina charts, and special effects such as push-and-pulls, flaps, pop-ups, and lights bring this fascinating subject to life.
