3. In the past, the human labor and the aid of domesticated
animals, both gave the efforts to build the earliest societies.
When the machines were invented to perform repetitive tasks,
like “lifting water and grinding grain”, and mechanics and
complex mechanisms were developed, human labor became
less important. As a result, more technological advances
developed slightly and widely spread.
Electronics was a major technological advance that led to the
creation of the “autonomous robots” by William Grey in 1948. In
1954, George Devol invented a digital and programmable robot
and called it “Unimate”, that later on was used to move hot
metal objects by General Motors in 1960.

Learn the names of many robots and give random examples. No one
cares. Just use some technical terms and delete this box :P

What is a robot?
What are they made of?
Definition= ‘forced work or labor’
The controller ‘brain’
The field of study of the robots
Roboticists: people who specialize in robotics
Robotics in our lives: has a big role in education, industry,
science and researches

7. Robots invention
Why use robots?
1948: the invention of the robots by the British robotics
pioneer; William Grey Walter
The robot’s creating notion and it’s creation through ages
Humans wanted a machine to rely on, because robots never
get tired and help the humans by different tasks all the time.
Will discuss the reasons more under the advantages of the

10. Used to do repetitive (boring) actions or jobs
Perform a variety of tasks
Improve in quality
Increase in production
Perform dangerous tasks that humans can’t do
Robots do not get sick, they can work 24/7 without
Advantages & disadvantages
Expertise: training on to use robots takes time

11. The robots’ influence, and theirfuture
In the future, people and robots can go side by side in
their lives in each area. In several areas they are
irreplaceable now already.
Replace many hard-working human workers with robots.

Who knows exactly how this term “human and robots” will be translated
into future. Humans and robots that complement each other – they
prosper together and live together. However, Complicated tasks are still
best performed by human beings with real brainpower.
