As technology gets more and more advanced, robots will do more things for us. Robots will be used to do dangerous jobs for people. Robotics is also being used to help the human body do its job. Scientists are working on many new and amazing ways for robotic machines to help our bodies. Robotics isn't just for work. Today's robot toys come in many shapes and sizes. Toys can now walk, talk―and even learn.
What exactly is the future of robotics? We know we are moving toward a world where robots play an important role.

3. Write your feelings about the book in details.

The first robot toy was made in 1930s. It was made of tin and could only move its arms(See p 27).

It must have been expensive in the past.

4. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.

In 1998, Warwick put a computer chip into his arm. The chip communicated with computers in his lab and told them where in the lab he was(See p 39).

It's the same function as GPS or what is called "kid's mobile". Surprisingly, he put the chip into his arm! ( )

This is a very interesting book, which will be great for students who are new to knowledge of the field of robotics, and also gives great information to those who are already technologically savvy. This book helps students understand the technology used today, and prepare for a future where we will be quite possibly much more dependant on robotics.
