Beyond Human, Living with Robots and Cyborgs

Creator: Gregory Benford, Elisabeth Malartre | Computers - 2008-12-09

At least one of the models is programmed to return to its recharger when the batteries run down. Robotic household vacuum cleaners came next, best exemplified by the iRobot Roomba, a low-slung device introduced in 2001.

About this book
Would your body work better with some artificial parts? Will you live longer, perhaps a lot longer, than you now expect?  The next decade promises another qualitative shift in the way we view technology, as once purely fictional concepts—robots, cyborg parts, and the many variations in between—become part of reality.Beyond Human treats the landscape of human self-change and robotic development as poles of the same phenomenon. Can we go too far in making ourselves machine-like or making machines resemble us? Once made, what will such creatures think about us? These questions will arise in myriad ways in the next few decades, as we press against boundaries that a short while ago existed only in works of the imagination. Written in a lively and provocative style, this is a readable book about the accumulation of small scientific advances that add up to something large and challenging.

    Fights Fur Furiously

    We just got our . It was simple to setup and charged in about two hours. We have run it once downstairs and upstairs.THE PLANThe plan is to run it during the day upstairs and to run it at night downstairs. The first problem we noted is that the schedule only seems to allow one time per day. This is ok since we have to carry it upstairs for the day runs. So, we just start it as we live in the morning. When we return, we put on the charger and let it clean at 2AM downstairs.OBSERVATIONSThe upstairs (approx. 1000 sqft) is a combination of wood floors, tile in the bathrooms, scatter rugs (bath style and oriental). Roomba did a good job covering an awkward area. We captured a full bin of hair from the dogs. The only problem is that it got caught in the... 5/5 Jack V.

    Roomba 650 vs Neato XV-11

    I have had the roomba 650 for about a year now and just got the XV-11 so I thought it might be good to let people know my experience with the 2. First let me say that I am a BIG fan of both but I will compare/contrast the 2 and hopefully help you decide if you are on the fence.Cleaning: Both of them do a very nice job of cleaning and you will be surprised by how much dirt/dust/pet hair etc you get. While they are pretty even on this i give a slight edge to the XV-11 as it is a bit more powerful and will pick up "clinging" stuff better than the roomba. Both dust bins are comparable (in volume) with the Roomba being a bit bigger and easier to empty due to the XV-11 having to have the filter removed to empty. Not a big deal but Roomba a bit easier to empty. Winner = Tie.2.) Battery life. Roomba wins here hands down with battery life, with a catch... The roomba easily runs 45 mins - 1.5 hours on a charge. Both will need a bin emptying either half way... 5/5 coolhandluke2222 "coolhandluke2222" (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: iRobot Roomba 650 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets (Misc.)

    Love it...wish I hadn't waited so long to get one.

    I don't have to vacuum anymore and my floors have never been so clean. I scheduled it to run every day. It is amazing how much dust and other debris this thing picks up. All it takes is a 5 minute clean up of the Roomba each day-dump the bin, shake out the filter and clean the 2 rollers. It runs just over an hour before going back to base to charge. I have a large house, I run it in the main living area each day, and I move it manually to other parts of my house about 2x a month. My father bought one instanty after seeing how well mine cleaned-he is very critical of everything, but has no complaints about his 650. My 3 year old daughter & I named it Rico-she loves watching daddy's "robot" run around the house. It is much quieter than a conventional vacuum-I can watch TV while it runs, but I schedule it to run after I leave in the morning.A couple of tips:Vacuum one time yourself before setting this thing loose-it makes a world of difference in the performance.Pick... 5/5 Rowe - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The good, the Bad and the Ugly!

    I have had my Neato XV Signature Pro vacuum for about a month now. In short, I am very happy with it, and it has exceeded my expectations. Is it absolutely perfect? no. Is it worth it? yes! My wife rolled her eyes when it arrived, but I think she has grown to respect and admire our little robotic vacuum.Pros:Good vacuum strength and cleans wellDoes a good job around furniture, along walls and in corners.Covers a large area,Requires very little attention.Cons:Smallish dust bin.Likes to eat cords and rug fringe.A little noisy.Chases the dog. (ok just kidding on that one)For us, it vacuums an area of about 2400 sq ft (configured as six rooms). These rooms include a kitchen/dinning, entry, family room, hallway, bedroom and one and a half bathrooms. The flooring is a combination of tile (with area rugs) and carpeting. We are a family of four with one long haired dog (the dog's name is Molly. The vacuum's... 3/5 Mark A. Workman "Bigtexman" (San Antonio, TX) - See all my reviews, October 2, 2013

    Neato vs. Roomba vs. Hom-Bot

    Here is my comparison review of the Neato Signature Pro, iRobot Roomba 780, and the LG Hom-Bot Square. I bought and tested all three, and ended up keeping the Neato and returned the other two. Here are the details of our comparison and review of each model:iRobot Roomba 780 - It is one of the dumber vacuum robots on the market, because it lacks the more advanced navigation abilities that competitors have, while costing more than some of them. It uses brute force blind navigation of bouncing around in a room randomly until it cleans the whole room. Watching it running around like a chicken with its head cut off can really try your patience. You can't help but think if it was smarter in how it navigated, it would get the job done much quicker and more efficiently. It also went over many areas multiple times because it has no memory of where it's been (iRobot says these's an algorithm to its randomness, but you can't tell by observing it). It doesn't get caught up by power... 4/5 Rob Chang (California) - See all my reviews This review is from: Neato XV Signature Pro Pet & Allergy Robot Vacuum Cleaner (Misc.)

    Still won't clean the whole area, but there's hope

    I couldn't find any reviews anywhere for this model when I purchased it and am surprised there still isn't a single review showing up on Amazon.Info in the box - There isn't any information specific to this model on the box, in the paper manual, or on the disk. No mention of how long it runs on a single charge or about the suction compared to other models. It does mention that charging time is 2-3 hours.Charging Station Placement - As with the other models, you need to place the charging station along a wall 3 feet from corners or obstacles on either side and the area 3 feet in front of the charger should be clear of obstacles. Luckily, I found a place like that, but there are probably lots of people who can't.Menu - The menu is extremely simple to use. It asks about the language you'd prefer, asks you to set the time, and then you can schedule up to one cleaning time for each day of the week. You can also set it to spot clean a 4 x 6... 4/5 Teresa J. Hulvey "TJ" (REDONDO BEACH, CA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
