Robots - Explore the World of Robots and How They Work for Us
Publisher: Sky Pony Press
Discover the amazing world of robots, from their surprising history to the latest cutting-edge technology, in this illustrated volume for young readers.
Robots have been developed for numerous purposes, often involving work that is either too dangerous or simply too tedious for humans. While some robots explore space or take on military roles, others are designed for average household chores. In Japan, where an ageing population is leading to a labor shortage, the government hopes robots will be able to fulfill necessary jobs. In the United States, robots even help with surgery, allowing for smaller and more precise incisions that result in fewer complications and faster recovery times.
This fascinating book in the Fact Atlas series explores the history of robots, from the very first robot designed by Leonardo da Vinci to predictions of the roles robots will play in our future. Kids will learn about how robots are often modeled after real life-forms, such as bees, sharks, and, of course, humans. Author Rick Allen Leider also looks at robots in pop culture, and how they have influenced and inspired real-world technology.
