Robots already make our cars and clean our homes. Within a few years they will be driving us around, teaching our children and even talking to us. Some futurologists fear robots could take over half our existing jobs and even wipe out human beings.
But is that likely? With 60 colour photos, Hallo Robot reveals how robots see, feel, and act, what they can and can’t do — and what roles they will perform in the future.
Instead of posing a threat to the human race, the authors argue that robots could significantly improve our lives. They could do dull and dangerous tasks, help us walk again after accidents, rescue people from collapsed buildings, and take a starring role in the fight against hunger and pollution.
