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
"riveting and comprehensive, encompassing every aspect of the rise of military robotics." --Financial Times In Wired for War, P. W. Singer explores the great­est revolution in military affairs since the atom bomb: the dawn of robotic warfare. We are on the cusp of a massive shift in military technology that threatens to make real the stuff of I, Robot and The Terminator. Blending historical evidence with interviews of an amaz­ing cast of characters, Singer shows how technology is changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and the ethics that surround war itself. Traveling from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan to modern-day "skunk works" in the midst of suburbia, Wired for War will tantalize a wide readership, from military buffs to policy wonks to gearheads.

    This is the Best mop around!

    0 5/5 Trey Smith (PA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dual Action Microfiber Flip Mop (Kitchen) We have recently gone Green with our cleaning & needed a new mop. I wanted one gadget that could do mulitple things & this was the top choice.It works great on tile, wood, & other surfaces.Its very well made- sturdy but not heavyYou can wash the pad up to 100 times before replacing! I just throw in in the wash with detergent and either baking soda or vinegar cleans right up like new. I hang it to air dry and thats it!It catches all the dirt and easily flips over to mop. I use a vinegar/water combo to clean pur floors and this really helps to make them shine!I love it! Will continue to buy ocedar products! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 17, 2013

    Love it! But got it for less at walmart...

    0 5/5 Kyle Clayton - See all my reviews This review is from: Dual Action Microfiber Flip Mop (Kitchen) I got this mop for $8 at my local walmart. Just saying... But it is a wonderful tool! And I love that the cleaning mats are reusable. More eco-friendly than swiffer and sturdier, too. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 1, 2014

    GREAT quality, genious design!

    0 5/5 Izzy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dual Action Microfiber Flip Mop (Kitchen) Exactly as described, well-made quality.I use this on my vinyl flooring. Mop with one side (use a spray mix), then "polish" with the flipside. Shortens floor-cleaning time and gets rid of any residue that might be left on the floor. Leaves floors clean and soft/shiny if that makes sense. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 17, 2013

    iRobot Scooba 450 Floor Scrubbing Robot

    Rating (64 reviews):
    (3.7/5)
    iRobot

    I call it Turbo!

    I've had 2 Scoobas before this one, starting with the 5900 series, upgrading to the 300 series and now this one. This is a dramatic departure from what I'm used to in some good ways and some bad. I like it-- but with some caveats. I'm also a devoted Roomba user, currently having a 650. I started way back with the Roomba Red that I bought on Amazon way back on Feb 23, 2007. I've been a long term customer of the robot vacuums.Unpacking the unit, the first thing I noticed was that this design was drastically different than what I've been using for the last several years. It looks like they stopped making a separate body style for the Scoobas, and consolidated on a single design. This one is very much designed just like the Roomba, replacing the dirt bin with the water tank. This also means that cleaning of the Scooba itself is easier, and the brush scrubber area where the scrubbing takes place removes much easier for rinsing than the previous models. This model also has... 4/5 RST_ (USA) - See all my reviews, April 22, 2014

    OMG! Yes, it cleans floors. It's a noisy little beast, but so cool

    So I've had a Mint floor cleaning robot for a long time, which is essentially a very smart Swiffer. I'd been wanting to try one of the newer Roomba style robots and was thrilled to get the opportunity to review this new Scooba 450. I'll go through some things you should consider when buying a floor cleaning robot, and how the Scooba stacks up.1) Is it loud?Yes it is. I mean, not rock concert loud, not even vacuum cleaner loud, but it makes a bit of a ruckus.2) What types of floors does it clean?It mops and vacuums, so pretty much any hard floor. I tried it on a vinyl kitchen floor, a tile bathroom floor, and several hardwood floors. It did a great job on each.3) Does it get stuck a lot?No, and on the rare occasions it did, it signaled to me with a sound, and when I pushed the information button it told me "I'm stuck" in a cute voice.4) How's the battery life?It charges fairly quickly (but do a long charge... 5/5 Bookenator - See all my reviews, April 26, 2014

    Excellent if your room floors are perfectly flat and either 150 or 300 sq/ft

    Edit: I had to remove a star because the Scooba will sometimes end it's cycle under the bed. It's a large bed so it is sometimes very difficult to reach it. I certainly don't start it under the bed so I'm not sure why it ends there. It's a fairly serious design flaw if you have a very large area underneath something that is difficult to move. Fortunately it isn't impossible for me to reach it...just difficult.My experience with floor cleaning robots started with the Mint 4200. I wanted a sweeping robot to get under the beds and futon in the apartment. I really like the Mint and it does exactly what I want it to do--sweep dust.So I was really excited to try the Scooba 450 because i thought it would take my robotic floor cleaning to a new level and in a way, it has. First I want to say this is a very well made robot and it does a fine job in a small room on floors that are perfectly flat and even. In my kitchen, which has new tile, the cleaning is... 3/5 MJ23447 (USA) - See all my reviews, April 26, 2014
