Most robots aren’t as clever as Moby or as exciting as the mechanical people you see in science fiction, but they're still pretty cool. In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you all about robots and how they work! Discover the technical definition of a robot and why robots are currently unable to work without human input. You’ll also learn how robots are becoming more and more complex — and you’ll see how they’re used in applications ranging from performing household chores to exploring deep-sea areas and other planets where humans aren’t able to go. So check out our robot movie — Moby and his kind will be glad that you did!
