What is the connection between computer and robot? I have an assignment from my editor to write about "robot and computer" for children book. Somehow, I get confused about how to connect robot and computer. Please, if anyone know the answer.

A computer's fundamental purpose is to compute. It is designed to take in data and manipulate it. A robot is designed to move through, interact with and manipulate its physical environment. A robot can be human-guided or be programmed to make its own decisions. In the latter case, the line between computer and robot becomes blurred, as the computer becomes the "brain" receiving "sensory data" and telling the robot "body" what to do next.

A computer's key design is to process. It is intended to take in information and control it. A robot is intended to travel through, interface with and control it nature's domain. A robot can be human-guided or be customized to settle on its own choices. In the recent case, the line in the middle of machine and robot gets to be smudged, as the machine turns into the "cerebrum" getting "tangible information" and telling the robot "body" what to do next.
