Robots have been a source of fascination to me since my childhood. That was during the time of the first Star Wars trilogy, with very humanlike robots appearing on the screen, such as C-3PO, who still reminds me of some friends of mine, and not so humanlike others, such as R2-D2 (who nev- theless also reminds me of some people I know). There were the books of Stanislaw Lem and Douglas Adams that discuss the philosophical questions related to the creation of artificial beings. Do androids dream of electric sheep? I still wonder. Yet all my attempts to build something similar on my own failed. The gizmos I’d assembled from wood and plastic not only looked strangely different from the ones I had in mind, but also didn’t do anything (besides fall apart frequently). The time was not ripe for building robots of your own, unless you had a degree in electronic engineering, high soldering capabilities, and a well-endowed bank account to acquire all the special electromechanical parts required.

From the reviews:
"This book describes how to mechanize in Lego five designs by Leonardo da Vinci. The book starts with a short and engaging introduction to Leonardo da Vinci and his work, including pictures of the original drawings of some of his designs. … Overall, the book is clear and well written. … The step-by-step instructions for building the different designs are relatively easy to follow for people who are not novices with Lego parts." (M. Gini, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (12), December, 2008)
