"it slowly dawned on me that the landscape of science is maybe what interests people a great deal in science fiction."
- Gregory Benford

Robot Control Board  
  Control panel with small screens showing the point of view of different robots.  

"Look here," said the professor. He was leading the way to a massive board on the right side of the room. "Here is the robot control board. Do you see these many hundreds of tiny, mirror-like circles? On those register all the things that pass before the eye in my robots. It is done by the use of an advanced form of television broadcaster. For every circle here, there is a robot, and you can see the intense concentration of energy necessary to control all of them at the same time."


(The Robot Master)

From The Robot Master, by O.L. Beckwith.
