Robots, Among Us!

Once purely a construct of science fiction, robotics is now a field of study that has forged our future.

Modern robotics are used in various utilitarian venues, from manufacturing plants, to space exploration to the creation of modern art exhibits; and although they have become almost common place in our society, they still remain a staple of the science fiction genre.

The Al Harris Library has many books and media dedicated to the subject of robotics. We have text books that relay the process of designing and building such devices, books that detail their everyday usage, and fictional works from visionaries such as Isaac Asimov, Phillip K. Dick and Fritz Lang.

Whether your interest is in the work they are doing, the principles of their design, or speculative fiction about their future, we are sure to have some interesting information to process!

Feel free to check out any of the materials on this display!
