The first humanoid robot invented in 1921

There was a play about robots premieres at the National Theater in Prague, the capital of what was then Czechoslovakia. Rossum’s Universal Robots by Karel Capek, marks the first use of the word “robot” to describe an artificial person.

Capek invented the term, basing it on the Czech word for “forced labor.” The robots in Capek’s play are not mechanical men made of metal. Instead they are molded out of a chemical battery, and they look exactly like humans. After that, the robot named Eric was invented in 1928.
