The term Robot comes from a Czech word, robota, meaning "forced labor.” The word 'robot' was first used to denote a fictional humanoid in a 1920 play R.U.R. (Rossumovi Univerzální Roboti).

The Robot became part of pop-culture in the 1950s with the creation of characters such as Astro Boy (1952), and then in the 1960s with characters such as the adorable Rosie the Robot in The Jetsons.
