"If every instrument could accomplish its own work, obeying or anticipating the will of others . . . If the
shuttle could weave, and the pick touch the lyre, without a hand to guide them, chief workmen would not need
servants, nor masters slaves."
Aristotle wrote these words over two thousand years ago. He envisioned what we today call "robots." Shuttles that could weave by themselves, instruments that could play music without any person even touching a string. This shows that even thousands of years before the technology was possible to create
robots, there were humans that were already prophesizing the infinite possibilities of robotics.
