Salon.com Technology | Robots “R” us – Review
robot inroad to the psyche

“Robo Sapiens: Evolution of a New Species” takes this notion and runs with it. Journalist Faith D’Aluisio and photographer Peter Menzel have assembled an accessible guide to the field of robotics that’s part photo essay and part primer, with a healthy dose of fatalistic futurism. They start out with a bang — the shocking cover image of an eerily fetuslike robot head is possibly the most disturbing photo ever to appear on a coffee-table book — and manage to turn interviews with more than 100 of the geekiest humans around the world into a curious peek at the future that will satisfy both the layperson and the engineer alike.
