The Omni Book of Computers & Robots



Back Page

For some, they are the hope of the future, time-saving devices designed to free us from drudgery. For others, they are frearsome and misunderstood, electronic wonders destined to replace man in the workplace. Almost all of us, though, lack the background to truely understand computers and robots. Here, collected from the pages of Omni magazine, which has been making the computer revolution understandable to hundreds of thousands of readers since 1978, are articles written to unravel the mystery. Arthur C. Clarke, G. Harry Stine, Spider Robinson and a galaxy of other writers explain, without specialized jargon, without cryptic circuit diagrams, what these wonders of science are all about. Welcome to the future.
