CNC Robotics by Geoff Williams Now, for the first time, you can get complete directions for building a CNC workshop bot for a total cost of around $1,500.00. CNC Robotics gives you step-by-step, illustrated directions for designing, constructing, and testing a fully functional CNC robot that saves you 80 percent of the price of an off-the-shelf bot and can be customized to suit your purposes exactly, because you designed it. $34.95
Amphibionics by Karl Williams If you're a robotics hobbyist with a flair for creativity, here's your opportunity to join the revolution and advance robotic evolution. This work provides the hobbyist with the detailed mechanical, electronic, and PIC microcontroller knowledge needed to build and program snake, frog, turtle, and alligator robots. It focuses on the construction of each robot in detail and then explores the world of slithering, jumping, swimming, and walking robots — and the artificial intelligence needed with these platforms. Packed with insight and a wealth of informative illustrations, Amphibionics focuses on construction details and explores the artificial intelligence needed to make these specialized movements happen. $19.95
Build Your Own All-Terrain Robot by Brad Graham / Kathy McGowan Remotely operated robots are becoming increasingly popular because they allow the operators to explore areas that may not normally be easily accessible. The use of video-controlled technology has sparked a growing public interest not only in hobbyists, but also in the areas of research, space, archeology, deep sea exploration, and even the military. Inside Build Your Own All-Terrain Robot, the writers enable even total newcomers to robots to construct a rugged, video-controlled, talking, seeing, interacting explorer bot with a range of over a mile for under $200.00! $29.95
