* KillItWithFire: The solution to killing the explosive "Stumper" robots. They detect and are attracted to heat signatures, which is what makes them so effective; they seek out warm human bodies, crawl up your leg, and explode...giving them their name. The human soliders deal with them with a flame thrower.
* KillerRobot: The book is chock full of them. From haywire military machines, robotic servants, hostile toys, aircraft, and even automated cars which go beserk and start running down people or trapping their passengers inside while they drive into the ocean.
