There are very few photos of my various creations (not least because each later robot tended to be made from pieces of earlier ones) but recently I found a few pictures, which I've assembled to show the fruits of my teenage labour.

I'm pleased to announce that my new book will be published next month. Entitled: "10 Short Lessons in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics", it is one of the launch titles of the Michael O’Mara Books new Pocket Einstein series.

But much of the commentary has been not-so-intelligent, discussing this technology as an awesome or terrifying form of black magic. Peter Bentley is a true expert, and has given us a lucid, balanced, and engaging tour of one of the most important phenomena of this century.​ Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of How the Mind Works and Enlightenment Now.

Thanks Steve!
