Build Your Own Robot ! @ US$34.95
Build Your Own Robot! Paperback - 560 pages 1 edition (March 2000) A K Peters Ltd; ISBN: 1568811020
Personal robots are about as advanced today as personal computers were on the eve of the first IBM PC in the early 1980s. They are still the domain of hobbyists who cobble them together from scratch or from kits (available through such vendors as robotstore.com), who join local clubs to swap code and stage contests, and whose labor of love is setting the stage for a technological revolution. There is even an analogy to the Apple II, a ready-made, almost mass-market product: the Cye robot. And two companies, Dyson and Eureka, are beta-testing the first potential killer app: automated vacuum cleaning. Lunt's former column from Nuts & Volts magazine-all five years of the column are reprinted in this volume-has been to robot hobbyists what Byte and Popular Electronics were to computer hobbyists. Along with Joseph Jones and Anita Flynn's Mobile Robots, his book serves as an essential guide for those who want to build their own blinking, buzzing, bumbling artificial pets. .... by Karl Lunt
