RobotsShowcasing the evolution of modern robotics from a 1582 iron manikin to one of the first walking two-legged robots, the Science Museum's new exhibition explores the deep-seated drive to recreate ourselves and how robots have been shaped by religious belief, the industrial revolution, 20th century popular culture and dreams of the future. Robots will reveal the remarkable 500-year story of humanoid robots with over 100 robots on display, 12 of which will be working models that you might get to interact with. In addition to the exhibition, the Science Museum has also launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise £35,000 to rebuild the UK's first humanoid robot, Eric. If successful, Eric will form the centrepiece of the Robots exhibition.
