    just watch iRobot, that's all you need I think.
    actually I don't know much about the topic sorry I can't help more
    No that it will help in your studies, but because I think i is interesting you should check out some of Issac Asimov's books

    iRobot is useful if we actually could produce such things. But that will take us another century or so.

    I would probably recommend you start reading up on books that relate more to computer engineering, and electrical engineering. Maybe even try out some Physics, because I am sure that a lot of the physical type of stuff come from there. I think that if you try to read those types of books and study those fields (not all at once though although they are all connected together) you shouldn't have too much of a problem.

    I would also suggest in looking at all the possible career options - like Honda, Sony, and any American based research companies; sorry not sure of any. These things will help you stay up to date on where the field is in terms of actually producing a partial/fully functional robot and what the industry is in real need of. That way you can then plan out your studies and careers to fill in that necessary block or niche.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Rocky Rocks. I work with industrial robots, Fanuc mostly. Robotics is a broad field and they are used lots of places. Where in the world are you?

    Hey, you are welcome! What city are you in? Have you tried a google search of the companies in you city that have anything to do with robotics. You may find internships available.
