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.

    my place... was ... disgusting

    850 square feet of tiled and hardwood floored filth. I thought I vacuumed.. I thought I swiffered... I was wrong. I was living in filth, and I had no idea. This baby works. Have hard floors? Get it. The price made me a touch nervous, heck, we all have friends who hate their robotic cleaners. This is not the robot your friend/coworker has who hates it; this is legit. An awesome cat ninja dirt filth assassin you will name and adore.Does the swiffer action work? Heck to the yes. It picks up tons of stuff just like a dry cloth on the end of aluminum stick that I was beholden to for far too long. But, this baby is smaller, more nimble and I am not physically pushing it. You may still need to pull out the swiffer vacuum for tight corners; who cares!? Thanks to this baby I now have a second job making/selling toupees online with all the hair this bloodhound of filth finds.Does the wet mop action work? Yes, but not to really scrub.

    iRobot Braava - loved by this homeowner (and her cats too)!

    I love this little robot. It's so quiet even my cats adore it; they follow it around and pretend to be scared (Run away! Run away!) when it turns around and appears to chase thrm. Then they take a nap on the sofa while it cleans the room.It would almost be worth the money just for that show every time i use it, but it also does an exceptional job cleaning my hardwood floors. It works far better than the roomba that i had, which was excrutiatingly loud and worse, it was so messy to clean out after it vacuumed i always had to clean the floor again AFTER using it.The iRobot Braava is not a vacuum though, it pushes (or drags) its pile of dust and cat hair along as it goes. Surprisingly it doesn't deposit any of it along it's way. I did accidentally begin (and have continued) by using what is supposed to be the wet cloth on its dry cleanings - maybe that helps, since it's thicker than a swiffer cloth. At the end of a Mint session the dirt it is hauling along is... 5/5 Lush Landscapes (New York) - See all my reviews This review is from: iRobot Braava 320 Floor Mopping Robot (Misc.)

    Cleaning Buddy

    This iRobot Braava 320 works great on my ceramic tile floors.There is a large (nine feet by twenty-one feet in some places) foyer in this house that gets high usage from two entry doors. Off the foyer is an eight by twelve kitchen floor. Although the kitchen creates an "L" there is no obstruction -- it's just one smooth expanse of ceramic tiles.On the "sweep" setting, the iRobot takes care of this entire expanse, even when the direction cube is placed in the foyer. With the microfiber cloth, it does a fantastic job of dust-mopping the floor. When I first used it, I was fascinated by the criss-crossing patterns the iRobot was making, grabbed my Swiffer, and dust-mopped nearby sections of floor. Later, when the microfiber cloth was in the laundry, I attached a Swiffer dry cloth to the iRobot cleaning pad -- it fit perfectly. The microfiber cloth grabs some of the larger debris, but the Swiffer cloths don't do as good a job -- they're better for dust and fine... 5/5 J. A.

    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
