Cosmic ran----ger, laugh at dan----ger, everything is go, Astroboy!
Crowds will cheer you, you're a he----ro, as you go, go, go, Astroboy!

Gigantor 

Gigantor, Gigantor, Gigantor. 

Gigantor the space aged robot, 
He is at your command. 
Gigantor the space aged robot, 
His power is in your hand. 

Bigger than big, taller than tall, 
Quicker than quick, stronger than strong. 
Ready to fight for right, against wrong. 

Gigantor, Gigantor, Gigantor.

Tetsujin 28 Film Theme


 

Robot - From the Slav. robotnik, 'workman'; O. Slavrobu 'servant'. & Russ. robota, 'work'. others suggest that robota actually means 'forced workers' or 'slaves'.
The term Robot was first used in the play 
Czech novelist Karel Capek. 
(Interestingly, Capek's robots where constructed by chemical means not mechanical).
(Actual literal translation is Rossum's Artificial Robots).

Today, various definition of a robot can be found:
    "A robot is defined as a re-programmable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices through various programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks.”  (
Robot Institute of America, 1979).


    "A robot is an automatic device that performs functions normally ascribed to humans or a machine in the form of a human.” A robot is described as a machine designed to execute one or more tasks repeatedly, with speed and precision. There are as many different types of robots as there are tasks for them to perform. (Webster’s dictionary)
.

 

"Laws of Robotics"

0.    A robot may not injure humanity, or, through inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.

1.    A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm, unless this would violate a higher order law.

2.    A robot must obey orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with a higher order law.

3.    A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with a higher order law.

From Handbook of Robotics, 56th Edition, 2058 AD, as quoted in I, Robot - Isaac Asimov

Asimov also proposed his three "Laws of Robotics", and he later added a 'zeroth law' (0).
