Enter the exciting world of robots, amazing machines programmed by humans to do all sort of things. Robots come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Some are not able to move around like the large robotic arms that help assemble new cars at the factory, but some can walk with mechanical legs or move with wheels or other surprising ways. Robots are becoming fancier and they are capable of doing things that we could not have imagined possible just a few years back. Robots can help humans in all sorts of useful ways. There is the robot snake, a robot shaped like a snake that has cameras that can go under a collapsed building to look for victims of earthquake disasters. There is the robotic tuna that can dive deep into the ocean to help scientists explore the marvels of the sea. Then there are the robots that can help sick humans, like the robot that can lift patients from a bed or the floor.  Donít want to mow your lawn? The robot lawnmower will do the job. In China, when you go to a restaurant you might be served by a robot waiter. Would you believe that there are robots so very, very tiny that you need a microscope to see them? Robots have even been to other planets. Two robot rovers are exploring Mars. Discover more fascinating robot facts in this cool book (May Harn Liu,, librarian).
