This section is intended to provide you with an overview of the history of robotics. As you may have guessed, the history of robotics is intertwined with the history of technology, science and the basic principle of progress. Technology used in computing, electricity, even pneumatics and hydraulics can all be considered a part of the history of robotics. Robotics currently represents one of mankind’s greatest accomplishments and is the single greatest attempt of mankind to produce an artificial, sentient being.
