I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the history of robots. The history of the Westinghouse robots is truly fascinating. Scott Schaut has done a fantastic job in telling this story.
Scott even spent three months building a full-size replica of Elektro (the coolest robot in history - and he's real!) for the Mansfield Memorial Museum in Ohio.
This book is a must-have for anyone interested in robots!

"I am Elektro, mightiest of all robots. I was created by Westinghouse Laboratories. I am 7 feet, 6 inches tall. I weigh 260 pounds. My brain is bigger than yours. It weighs 60 pounds. I can do many things. If you use me well, I can be your slave."
