Acclaimed roboticist and fiction writer Karl Iagnemma was interviewed on NOVA for their piece entitled “Engineering Fiction.”
Have a listen |MP3|.
Karl, from MIT, talks to NOVA scienceNOW‘s Susan Lewis about his dual life as a robot engineer and award-winning fiction author. He speaks of his preference for fiction over science and the reasons for these choices in this short interview. It was enough to whet my appetite… Apparently there is an upcoming movie starring Brad Pitt from one of his short stories, On the Nature of Human Romantic Interaction.
