Inside "Robot Companions" you'll find all the details, plans, and information you need to make a robot partner part of your daily life, at a price you can afford. Author E. Oliver Severin, originator of some of the technologies that make robots friendly, useful, and educational, shows you how to find or build your own robot helpmate -- either from commercial kits or an assembly of separate, off-the-shelf parts.
