Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 5-10. With clear color photos on almost every page showing machines performing amazing tasks--in space, deep in the ocean, in a collapsed building, in the workplace, on the human eye--this introduction to the science of robotics explores the wonders of technology. At the same time, Fritz reveals the wonders of the human body, the things people can do that robots can't yet accomplish. Fritz also makes a connection to work by science fiction writers such as Isaac Asimov: yes, fact and fiction are different, but maybe one day an intelligent creative robot will collect information through sensation. Computers are a big help, but how do you make a robot that can think? Unfortunately, there is no documentation, not even a bibliography or list of Web sites, but this small book, part of the Hot Science series, does, indeed, open up some fascinating questions. A glossary is appended. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2003 Booklist"
