Views of robots that I like. The word "robot" comes from a 1920 book by the Czech writer Karl Capek entitled "Rossom's Universal Robots." The word is from the Czech for serf labour or slave.
A 19th Century German talking machine.
A Swiss robot from the 1930's.
Too often, as in this scene from a 1941 film, it seems they're after the women!
