Fascinating insight into robotics in the military,
This review is from: Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century (Hardcover)
Bought the book after seeing a presentation on the web by the author back in April.
The books starts of by introducing some of the main players, talks about some of technological improvements. Later chapters feature the active use of robots and UAVs with theatres of war like Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the psychological effects of using technology both for the people operating the technology and those on the receiving end.
The author has spoken to people right across the board from university professors, to senior military officers to grunts on the ground and even people on the receiving end living in places like Palistinian 'Occupied Territories'.
Makes fascinating reading and would interest anyone who likes guns, robots, science fiction or all of the above.
