Robots – making machines human

Join us on a journey through the world of robotics, from the humble beginnings of 16th century mechanical automatons to the latest humanoids.

From 17 July 2019 the blockbuster exhibition Robots from the Science Museum in London, makes its first international stop at Tekniska museet.

Human-like machines – they are both fascinating and frightening at the same time. Why do we create machines that resemble us humans?

This intriguing exhibition features a unique collection of over 100 robots, from the earliest automatons to robots from science fiction and modern-day research labs.

Come face to face with some of the most advanced real-world robots with artificial intelligence, such as the news reader Kodomoroid, the fist-bumping Pepper the Robot and a Robothespian, who can quote lines from famous films.

Meet the classic T-800 from Terminator (1991), Maria from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis (1927), and see early automatons from the 16th century, a time when anatomical models and even clocks posed deep questions about whether the human body itself is a machine.
