Find out in this fascinating, full-color illustrated book on robotic animals, which introduces budding scientists to the field of biomimetics, the science of creating machines or materials by copying nature.

For decades, scientists have looked to scorpions and other eight- and six-legged creatures for inspiration. Imagine a creature that can withstand extreme temperatures—from below freezing to a brutal 120 degrees F—and survive in almost any environment on earth. Scorpions are among the best-adapted animals in the world. Now imagine a creature that can mow your lawn, vacuum your living room, guard a museum, build a car, and explore the surface of Mars all without oxygen or food.

Combine the best features of these animals and the technology of science and you can understand how scientists have been using robots designed after scorpions for years. Read about the “Scorpion” robots and how they help in space exploration and modern uses, and then build your own walking scorpion, complete with light up eyes and moving pincers.
