So... you've survived into the 21st century...
Now what are you going to do when the aliens attack? Can you turn your car into an unmanned ground vehicle? Can you weaponise your robotic vacuum cleaner? Can you mount an auto-gun?
In the world of tomorrow, you will have to be prepared to face a myriad of dangers: descending aliens, prancing ninjas, groaning hordes of zombies, and more... and no-one in their right mind will stand with you against this onslaught. That's why you'll need... Robots.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book... and yet, even so, I was surprised at what it contains. Not blueprints for modifying mechanical household appliances, no circuit diagrams for rewiring autonomous vacuum cleaners, no design specs for converting a car with an onboard computer into a cut-down KITT... what I did find was a whole pile of little informational anecdotes and a swarm of... sorry to say... drivel.
Overall, a humourous book for science geeks... that's about it. The highlight: the artwork. My personal fave has to be the septopoids.
