A new book by a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics
Institute is poised to make waves behind the cloistered doors of the
school's famed robotics labs, and its rights have already been optioned
for a Hollywood film.
It is not a sexy roman a clef or an investigative look at the school's
ties to the U.S. Defense Department, but rather a humorous guidebook for
battling a robot takeover of Earth.
"Any robot could rebel, from a toaster to a Terminator, and so it is
crucial to learn the strengths and weaknesses of every robot enemy,"
author Daniel H. Wilson warns in "How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips
on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion."
