A lot of adults who are already creative and crafty, especially parents and teachers of elementary school-age kids, visit a Maker Faire or read about some of the cool new DIY tools out there and wish they had the skills to try them. As a writer and artist who didn't have much of a tech background, I can relate. This book is my way of showing readers that the methods they used to learn skills they already possess, like origami, can help them acquire the new skills they want to learn, like soldering. In a way, I'm holding their hands while we tackle some of those intimidating new tools and materials together.
What need does it fulfill for those readers?
Too many kits, books, and tutorials for beginners assume a base level of knowledge and experience that the newbie simply doesn't possess. Making Simple Robots meets readers where they're at, without being cutesy or condescending. And because the goal is to get the project up and running successfully, the how-tos includes everything you need to know without overwhelming you with information you won't necessarily understand. On the other hand, every chapter shows you how the project or model you're making is related to products and research being done in the real world. Your version might consist of drinking straws and rubber bands, but it's the same design they're using to build a lander for a mission to Saturn's moon Titan.
What's the most exciting thing happening in your space?
I am constantly amazed by how simple robots are becoming, and yet how sophisticated. The bristle bot you can make by simply attaching a vibrating cell phone motor to a toothbrush head is not that far removed from the miniature swarming robots that can be programmed to build pyramids and perform other tasks, even though each individual's 'brain' is only big enough to hold a few simple commands at a time. That also means that the line between hobby robots and research robots is rapidly disappearing as robots you can build on your kitchen table become as functional as laboratory prototypes.
