Book Description:

TAB Electronics is the premier name in amateur robotics. Since the 1987 release of Gordon McComb's blockbuster Robot Builder's Bonanza hobbyists have looked to TAB as the source for cutting-edge, how-to robotics titles.

These groundbreaking, heavily illustrated books explain how to create everythinbg from basic, simple robots to ones that walk, see, feel, talk, listen and fight! Written by "professors of robotics" such as Gordon McComb and John Iovine, they're great for beginners as well as experienced robot builders.

Authoritative, innovative, fun, and always far ahead of anyone else, TAB continues the tradition with Build Your Own Remote-Controlled Robot.

Download Description:

Step-by-step, heavily illustrated plans you need to build a full-sized, remote-controlled Questor robot.

Not really a 'Robot' at all

The author's introduction goes into detail about the orgin and definition of the word 'Robot' and how it applies to this 'Showbot' project. However, the machine outlined in this book is not a robot in that it has no onboard sensing or decision circuitry at all. It is a remote controlled roving person shaped device complete with vacuum cleaner and beverage dispenser. If that's what your looking for this is a great book, but if you want to learn about robots capable of autonomous actions, look around some more - I recommend 'Programming Robot Controllers' or 'Building Robot Drive Trains' both from the Robot DNA series or even 'Robot Building for Beginners' as a better starting point.

Good book - a little dated

I have the original version of this book from the 1980's and the new printing hasn't changed much. The photos have been cleaned up and the new cover is nice. The design of the robot is relatively low-tech but it's a good starting point if you've never built a robot.

good material

this is a good book for those who r starting out with robot building it will also be helpful to those who are slightly experienced but do not have the technical background required for building advanced robots.

Ian C. Purdie, VK2TIP's Review

I was more than somewhat fascinated upon my initial perusal of the book for review to find it is literally, Complete Plans, Step-by-Step Illustrated Details. Very little electronics involved as such, next to no soldering.

For a robotics enthusiast here's a complete set of plans to create something your friends will envy. Your own butler named "Questor" by the author, David R. Shircliff.

If you want to build a robot, don't want to become involved in heavy electronics, are adept at basic mechanical construction then I recommend you definitely consider buying a copy of "Build A Remote Controlled Robot".
