This is an introduction to the world of machines, from the simplest robots through to the robots which operate complex machinery in factories, hospitals, on space missions and in cars, to the latest intelligent robots and cyborgs. Young readers will discover how the different parts of robots fit and work together and find out some of the many useful things they can do. Projects allow children to build simple robots and machines and investigate the robots all around them in everyday life.
