The word robot comes from the czech word meaning slave.The word is the brainchild of the czech playwright, novelist and a journalist Karel Capek, who introduced it in his 1921 hit play,R.U.R.,or Rossums universal robots.It tells the story of a company that uses latest biology, chemistry and physiology to mass produce workers who lack nothing but a soul.The robots could do all the work that the humans could not and soon the company inundated with orders.

In the final act the robots revolt against their human creators.In the end two robots somehow acquire human traits of love and compassion and go off into the sun setto make the world anew

The audiences loved the play very much and soon after,Robots became the darlings of science fiction writers.The first digital and programable robot was invented by George Devol
