Japan, 1985

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

In industry robots have taken over work which is dull, dirty, or dangerous. But there are many other applications such as nursing, helping the blind, fighting fires and crime prevention. Before we consider the impact of robots on our lives, we need to know more about how they work, what they can do, and how scientists and engineers see them developing in the future. This film takes its examples mainly from Japan where more robots are currently in use than in any other country.
