Product Notes

Today ROBOTS are everywhere we look. They're underneath US repairing our sewers; in the skies above US keeping US safe; and in our hospitals performing complex surgical procedures. From amusing novelties to practical labor savers host Daniel H. Wilson provides an insider view into the captivating world of robots. Join Daniel as he travels to Carnegie Mellon University where he earned a Ph.D. in robotics and learn about some of the latest technology being developed there including an autonomous robotic vehicle called "Boss." Discover how tele-presence technology has enabled robots to go where humans can't or shouldn't and watch as the capability comes to life through robots that can detect bombs perform delicate surgeries and locate disaster victims. Finally watch as Daniel becomes half-man half-robot with the help of a device that acts as an exoskeleton on the human body and which is now helping patients who have suffered trauma or have a congenital disease learn to walk again. Featuring exciting footage of innovative robots in action THE WORKS presents an eye-opening look at this amazing technology and what it means for the future of our society.
