I just read How To Survive a Robot Uprising

This book is part humor, part information on different kinds of robots and how they operate. It mentions some weak points such as sensors, the ability to handle rough terrain, and the need for access to an energy source. These weak points, however, are rapidly vanishing. I recall reading an article on how they are developing drones that can be recharged from the ground by lazers. There is also the small drone that you can buy that is controlled by an iPad.

The good news is that I think an uprising is unlikely. The bad news is that they can present danger without an uprising, like the unmanned armed drones in use today.

The bottom line is that this book was ok but it’s short so if you need a quick diversion, it will fit the bill.
