“A physical task becomes a visual display, and then a cognitive task. What once required strength now requires attention, patience, quick reactions.”
David A. Mindell, Our Robots, Ourselves: Robotics and the Myths of Autonomy

“When the astronauts in the LM interacted with the LM computer in the final phases of their descent, they were talking to a little piece of twenty-four-year-old Eyles’s brain.”
David A. Mindell, Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight

“robots are “only one software upgrade away” from full autonomy, as Scientific American has recently argued.”
