Robots set up home at Science Museum

Robots set up home at Science Museum

Here's my report about a new exhibition at the Science Museum in London which explores the rich history of robots throughout culture.

Robotville EU takes a look at how the idea of robots has developed through literature and how this influenced scientific thinking today.

I went to meet some of the robots and their creators. Andrew Spence explains how he built his Cockroach robot to behave like its namesake, and Lorenzo Natale explains how his iCub robot can learn through interactive play.
