The word ‘Robot’ first appeared in 1921 through Czech author, Karel Čapek to describe artificial people working in factories. The word was originally based on Robota, meaning approximately forced labour. Since their features in countless stories, robots have been the heroic outcome for many science fiction stories to date; some of which have achieved cult status. Our selective Hall of Fame includes what we propose as the real star in Star Wars, R2D2 along with the classic Robocop. However, we can’t forget the legendary one-liner, “I’ll be back” from what has become one of the most influential science fiction films of the 1980’s, Terminator.
