Autumn is upon us, friends – and what a lovely time of the year it is, don't you think? 🍂
It may be a little chilly out there, but there's nothing like snuggling up with a cuppa' and the lovely lot behind Radio DIVA. So what's in store this Tuesday evening?
OUT NOW! "Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots" by Kate Devlin (Bloomsbury @sigmascience). Buy in bookshops or at https://t.co/OXSk0qNUFw or https://t.co/kOulr1waBk. Audio book available: https://t.co/8hj8xp7VQa #TurnedOn #sexrobots pic.twitter.com/jHVTwYBBqG— Kate Devil-in 🎃 (@drkatedevlin) October 18, 2018
The idea of the seductive sex robot is the stuff of myth, legend and science fiction but beyond the fantasies there are real and fundamental questions about our relationship with technology as it moves into the realm of robotics. And that's exactly what Devlin's book explores.
Tune in on Tuesday as Kate answers all the questions you and the Radio DIVA team have ever had about sex robots (Halloween-shaped questions more than welcome...)
