Still science fiction just a few decades ago, robots and robotic systems are now conquering our everyday lives. Design plays a crucial role in this because it is designers who design the interface between humans and machines. Hello, Robot . shows intelligent machines in industry and the military; in the children's room and in the retirement home; while shopping and having sex; in art, in computer games and of course in film and literature. Detailed essays and interviews explore the question of how we deal with the fact that our environment is becoming increasingly digital, smarter and more autonomous. They shed light on our - often ambivalent - relationship with new technologies and broaden our perspective on the ethical and political questions that arise. With contributions and works by Douglas Coupland, Dunne & Raby, Gesche Joost, robotlab, Bruce Sterling and many others.
