About this book
Although advanced technologies are the cornerstone of modern life, few people understand how such technologies as robotics or nuclear science actually work. Fewer still realize how--and how dramatically--technology influences our society and culture. Robotics is a reference guide that provides nonspecialists with the most up-to-date information on seminal developments in the technology of robotics, as well as covering the social, political, and technical impacts of those developments on everyday life, both now and in the future. Included in Robotics are chapters on: BL Profiles of Robot Technology Pioneers, Visionaries, and Advocates. BLHow robot technology works. BLImpact of Robotics on broader society. BL Controversial issues involving robotic technology. BL The future of robotic technology. The volume includes a chronology of the technology, a glossary, organizations involved in robotics, and a thorough list of sources for further research.

About this book
A military expert reveals how science fiction is fast becoming reality on the battlefield, changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and ethics that surround war itself P. W. Singer?s previous two books foretold the rise of private military contractors and the advent of child soldiers? predictions that proved all too accurate. Now, he explores the greatest revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb?the advent of robotic warfare. We are just beginning to see a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make the stuff of I,Robot and the Terminator all too real. More than seven- thousand robotic systems are now in Iraq. Pilots in Nevada are remotely killing terrorists in Afghanistan. Scientists are debating just how smart?and how lethal?to make their current robotic prototypes. And many of the most renowned science fiction authors are secretly consulting for the Pentagon on the next generation. Blending historic evidence with interviews from the field, Singer vividly shows that as these technologies multiply, they will have profound effects on the front lines as well as on the politics back home. Moving humans off the battlefield makes wars easier to start, but more complex to fight. Replacing men with machines may save some lives, but will lower the morale and psychological barriers to killing. The ?warrior ethos,? which has long defined soldiers? identity, will erode, as will the laws of war that have governed military conflict for generations. Paradoxically, these new technologies will also bring war to our doorstep. As other nations and even terrorist organizations start to build or buy their own robotic weapons, the robot revolution could undermine America?s military preeminence. While his analysis is unnerving, there?s an irresistible gee-whiz quality to the innovations Singer uncovers. Wired for War travels from Iraq to see these robots in combat to the latter-day ?skunk works? in America?s suburbia, where tomorrow?s technologies of war are quietly being designed. In Singer?s hands, the future of war is as fascinating as it is frightening.

    Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

    There are some products where you question how you ever managed to live life without it. This is one of those products. I am in love with it. I have heard of the robot vacuums but never took the plunge to buy one because I thought it would be just another useless gadget I wasted money on. Well we had wood floors installed about a year ago and feel like they are impossible to keep clean. I just can’t keep up. You literally have to clean them daily and I’m not doing that. With this INLIFE Robotic Vacuum Cleaner I don't have to worry about it. It’s perfect for my floors.Included in the box are the robot, a charging dock, and an extra air filter, an extra microfiber cleaning pad, extra sweeper bristles, and a controller (Batteries included). The robot once charged is easy to use. You just hit the clean button and it does its thing. When the battery gets low it searches for the home base and puts itself back on the charger. Initially there were a few cords and... 5/5 Donna (Omro, Wi) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    My wife finally found her best 'housekeeper' !!!

    Customer Video Review Length:: 4:23 Mins This product won our heart on the first impression due to its great shape, compact design and beautiful shiny color. This vacuum cleaner is the greatest example of modern technology and design. There’s no way around it: You have to do housework. Aside from the regular dishes, laundry and straightening you do, your house needs deeper cleaning, like vacuuming, sweeping and mopping. By the end of the day, there’s little time left to do the things you want to do. You can take back some of your free time by investing in a robot vacuum.These little housecleaning helpers won’t replace your upright vacuum cleaner or mop, but they can help you maintain a cleaner home so you don’t have to do those deep cleans quite so often. It will go around to each and every corner of your house without missing one!! This robot vacuum may be sophisticated enough to pick up dirt and debris from your floors and then steer itself... 5/5 Brijesh (NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    It Does It's Job

    I have a very bad back. I injured myself playing basketball many years ago. Multiple doctors have told me that the only way to potentially fix my issue is with surgery, but with how severe the condition of my back is in, they didn’t rule out paralysis (even with surgery).So needless to say, doing everyday routines can be very cumbersome. So after years of using a “regular” sweeper/mopping (causing my back pain), I decided to treat myself with a self-automated one. That’s why I decided to order this robotic vacuum.So far I’ve been impressed with this robotic vacuum. It has worked great on my floors. I love the way it has cleaned my floors, but another thing I really like is the ease of use. There’s not a heavy vacuum to push around my house. Basically all I had to do is set it up and it was ready to go to work.Now I’m not a “Direction Guy.” What I mean by the is that I don’t like to... 5/5 RAW REVIEWS (North East Part of the United States) - See all my reviews, November 29, 2016
