Gods and Robots
- Myths, Machines, and Ancient Dreams of Technology
- By: Adrienne Mayor
- Narrated by: Adrienne Mayor
- Length: 9 hrs and 24 mins
The first robot to walk the earth was a bronze giant called Talos. This wondrous machine was created not by MIT Robotics Lab, but by Hephaestus, the Greek god of invention, more than 2,500 years ago. In this groundbreaking account of the earliest expressions of the timeless impulse to create artificial life, Adrienne Mayor tells the fascinating story of how ancient Greek, Roman, Indian, and Chinese myths envisioned artificial life, automata, self-moving devices, and human enhancements - and how these visions relate to and reflect the ancient invention of real animated machines.
Overall a Fun Book
