9781582345925: How To Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion

An inspired and hilarious look at how humans can defeat the inevitable robot rebellion—as revealed by a robotics expert.

How do you spot a robot mimicking a human? How do you recognize and then deactivate a rebel servant robot? How do you escape a murderous “smart” house, or evade a swarm of marauding robotic flies? In this dryly hilarious survival guide, roboticist Daniel H. Wilson teaches worried humans the keys to quashing a robot mutiny.

From treating laser wounds to fooling face and speech recognition, besting robot logic to engaging in hand-to-pincer combat, How to Survive a Robot Uprising covers every possible doomsday scenario facing the newest endangered species: humans. And with its thorough overview of current robot prototypes—including giant walkers, insect, gecko, and snake robots— How to Survive a Robot Uprising is also a witty yet legitimate introduction to contemporary robotics. Full of cool illustrations, and referencing some of the most famous robots in pop-culture, How to Survive a Robot Uprising is a one-of-a-kind book that is sure to be a hit with all ages.

From AudioFile:

Listen up. Robots are among us, plotting to overthrow humanity for our own good. This comical, though factually based, guide to the latest advances in robotics provides listeners with a variety of tactics to avoid android Armageddon. Stefan Rudnicki's deep, serious tone emphasizes the immediacy of the situation as he maps out escape routes and strategies for saving humankind. At times, his foreboding voice hints of bemusement. Listeners will laugh at Wilson's suggestions for defeating the rising robotic rebels, but at the same time be awed by the fantastic advances in technology described. Provided that CD players or computers don't revolt just yet, this audiobook proves to be an excellent listen. L.E. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
