The name for “robot” has dark origins.


Science Diction: The Origin Of The Word 'Robot' Robot is a relative newcomer to the English language. It was the brainchild of the Czech playwright, novelist and journalist Karel Čapek, who introduced it in his 1920 hit play, R.U.R., or Rossum's Universal Robots.

Symbolism: A robot represents petrified feelings, inability to express the innermost emotions, inability to take decisions and being influenced by others. Dreaming of controlling a robot means that you are an extremely dominating person in your waking life.

The first commercial, digital and programmable robot was built by George Devol in 1954 and was named the Unimate. It was sold to General Motors in 1961 where it was used to lift pieces of hot metal from die casting machines at the Inland Fisher Guide Plant in the West Trenton section of Ewing Township, New Jersey.
