Illustration for R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Čapek, 1920 It is from this play that we get the word "Robot"
The little tin robot (in Czech colours no less) on Čapek's grave absolutely made my day. Čapek was the man who brought the word "robot" to the English language with his play Rossum's Universal Robots or R.U.R. Olga Scheinpflugová was his wife. Cemetery behind the Peter and Paul Church in Vyšehrad, Prague.
