The History of Robots
We thought and found that this article will be very interesting for our readers.
Many many years ago people did not imagine that in the future will be created a “person” which will take human actions on itself.
The first robots were created in the early 1950s by George Devol, an inventor from Kentucky. For the next decade, he attempted to sell his product in the industry, but didn’t succeed. In the late 1960s, businessman/engineer Joseph Engleberger acquired Devol’s robot patent and was able to modify it into an industrial robot and form a company called Unimation to produce and market the robots. Engleberger is known in the industry as “the Father of Robotics”.
Would you like to get some information about the early legends of robots? Let’s move on! Many ancient methologies included artificial people, such as the talking mechanical handmaidens built by the Greek god Hephaestus out of gold, the clay golems of Jewish legend and clay giants of Norse legend. According to the Chinese legend in the 10th century BC,Yan Shi made an automaton resembling a human in an account from the Lie Zi text. Undoubtedly, we can find more and more early legends and beginings about robots. We were interested in this topic, have researched, studied and decided to share this interesting information with our readers. We live in a world which is also saturated with technics which are keenly similar with robots. Robots are already working in our everyday lives and have changed the way we live.
The first known robot was created by the mathematician Archytas and was an artificial bird. Archytas, who is known as the “father of mechanical engineering” created his bird out of wood and used steam to power the movements of the robot. In its best recorded run, it flew approximately 200 meters before running out of steam. This robot is famous as not only the first one, but also one of the first recorded instances of a scientist doing research on how birds fly.
