Modern robotics arose on the basis of synthesis of mechanics and cybernetics, and has sparked a new direction of development. For mechanics, this was associated with multilink manipulators type mechanisms, and cybernetics - with intelligent control, which is required for the latest generation of robots with artificial intelligence. You can find out all about this exciting science, by following reliable robot forums.

The task of robotics is the development and synthesis of mechanics and cybernetics with the aim of creating and using machines based on the use of robotic systems for various purposes.The role of robots in such systems and complexes can be different. They may be basic, when robots carry out major functions, to auxiliary when they do a basic service, or as an accessory that performs these functions.

Systems and complexes, using automated robots which robots perform basic functions, are called robotic. The origin of the word "robot" has Slavic roots. First, in 1920, it was introduced by the famous Czech writer Karel Capek in his play "Rossumovskie Universal Robots". Capek's play featured so called mechanical workers, designed to replace humans for heavy physical work. The Czech word robota means a heavy servitude. The famous writer Azimovcreated a cycle of short stories "I Robot".

According to the forecasts for the near future the "power" of the market for robots and cyborgs may exceed the car market. It is no secret that today there is a dynamically developing market for robotic toys (usually androids), home health care and military robots. A Championship is held in Tokyo, showcasing the latest developments. In general, experts on the forums are already talking about the future of personal robots.

Cyborgs will become a mass phenomenon. People all over the world use prosthetics. Glasses, dentures, and more complex replacement body parts are used, the introduction into the human body of RFID-tags is reality, so why not move in the direction of cyborgs.

Wu calls all his robots sons, giving them a name and adding to a room with the help of which he can show how the count for that "offspring" of his came to be. The evolution of robots has. Human evolution continues, but this is the development of both systems, combined.

Around 1596, Leonardo da Vinci designed (and possibly made and tested) a mechanical knight dressed in armor, apparently being the first anthropomorphic robot. Inside the armor, there was a mechanism that drove the artificial man, by using ropes and pulleys, creating the illusion that there is a living person inside. The knight-robot could sit down, move his head and hands, anatomically correctly open and close his mouth. Also, he could imitate sounds - came with an automatic accompaniment of drums.

There are many legends about Talos, which served as the basis for the film "Jason and the Argonauts". Among the myths and legends, there are those where the giant bronze man represented the first known in antiquity robot. Thus, according to one myth, after the abduction of Europa by Zeus, the god of thunder went to Crete and gave the locals three objects, one of which was a bronze giant robot.
