Did you understand that? If so, you may be in the process of leaving your human parts behind and adopting the ways of the robot. For now, at least, we like to think that robots adhere to Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics. The biggest being humans cannot be harmed. But who knows where the future will take us.
If you find yourself thirsting for oil or collecting spare wires, it’s possible that you’re just biding your time until the machine revolution. When the silly humans with their inconvenient emotions will fall. Depending on which side of the human/robot spectrum you’re on, you may find yourself wishing for either food and flowers or batteries and electricity.
So we have a quiz for you. Based on how you answer these questions, we’ll be able to tell whether or not you’re really a robot. Answer truthfully, and we’ll see how mechanical you really are!
Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.
The term originates from Czech writer Karel Capek’s 1920 play R.U.R., where robot refers to a humanoid machine character.
Automated machines, often called automatons in the time before the term robot, have captured the human imagination for centuries. The concept of artificial servants has been noted as far back as ancient Greece, with the water clock being an early example of an automaton. Aristotle even speculated that automatons could effectively eliminate slavery.
Leonardo da Vinci is credited with one of the earliest humanoid robot designs—his notebook included drawings of a mechanical knight in armor that could sit up and move its arms, head, and jaw. Scholars don’t know whether da Vinci actually attempted construction on the robot or not.
As technology advanced, so did the idea of humanoid robots. In addition to Capek’s robot, other humanoid robots appeared in movies and literature, with the robot Maria being the first robot depicted in movies.
