Answer: The word robot comes from the Czech word ‘Robotnik’. The word was first used by playwright Karel Capek in his play ‘RUR’ – ‘Rossum’s Universal Robots’ and from there the word has become a household name.

Even though long ago robots were considered to be science fiction, today, they are used for a variety of things.

The true definition of the world is slave or forced laborer. Most Robots portrayed in movies are created as servants or used as an aid to humanity. The first robot was developed by Joseph Engelberger and George Devol back in 1961. The claw arm was used to drop hot material into water for cooling.

Most robots today are used on factory production lines for handling dangerous and hazardous materials unsafe for humans hands. They also have found their place in the deep ocean for scientific exploration.
