From the Back Cover:

ROBOTIC EVOLUTION HAS BEGUN! THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO JOIN THE REVOLUTION

If you’re a robotics hobbyist with a flair for creativity, here’s your opportunity to join the revolution and advance robotic evolution. Amphibionics: Build Your Own Biologically Inspired Reptilian Robot leads you step-by-step through four amazing projects which, when completed, will leave you as master of a gang of robot reptiles that jump, slither, walk, swim, and respond to their environment!

Packed with insight and a wealth of informative illustrations, Amphibionics show you how to build your own snake, frog, crocodile, and turtle. It focuses on the construction of each robot in detail, and then explores the world of slithering, jumping, swimming, and walking robots — along with the artificial intelligence needed to make these movements happen. The book also:

* Tells you all you need for mechanical construction, programming, locomotion, remote control, and customization
* Teaches you corresponding electronics, PIC programming, artificial intelligence, software, motor control, and wireless data linking.
* Instructs you to build your own customizable remote control using inexpensive transmitter and receiver modules
* Helps you add your own touches, through a special section that shows you how to evolve each robot further and make it unique
* And much, much, more!

With each project amazingly inexpensive to complete, you’re bound to wind up with your own brood of reptilian robots in no time!
