Do you Love robots as much as I do? I am just fascinated by all that they can do now, and I love to see them in books, movies, and tv shows, whether they are realistic with our current technology or more advanced. Sometimes the more advanced robots that take place in futuristic books and movies are even more fun to imagine. (and sometimes way scarier)

Robot Universe is the perfect gift for any Robot lover in your life. Check out the book information and be sure to enter the giveaway below to win a copy for yourself or a friend!

Published by Sterling on November 10, 2015

Explore the Robot Universe, and discover the hundred most epic androids and automatons from myth, through popular culture, to modern-day machines.

Robot aficionado Ana Matronic—vocalist with world-famous band Scissor Sisters—explores their creation, design, purpose, and how they have comforted, fascinated, or terrified us across the ages and galaxies, profiling key sidekicks, servants, saviors, murder machines, cyborgs, and others in every genre. In-depth features cover special focus topics, such as robots in art and fashion, video games and comics, and music.

This richly illustrated collection deftly shows how we have defined and redefined robots, why they capture our imagination, and why they’re here to stay, ending with a look at real-life robots from early prototypes to what lies in our robotic future.
