The Sorcerers & Their Apprentices

THE SORCERERS & THEIR APPRENTICES by Frank Moss is read by Bruce Turk, and covers the history of MIT's Media Lab over the past 25 years, and what is coming next, including a device that turns any surface into a touch screen computer, a sociable robot that will be companion to aging baby boomers, and a tiny car that will be foldable and stackable.  The audiobook takes a Facebook approach to its subject, coming at it from all angles and with anecdotes aplenty.  Will robots take over the Earth?  Maybe not, at least for a long time.  But robots will become ubiquitous in the near future, as they take over many of the tasks we perform routinely now.
