Retrobot by YesterCool
A 1921 play by Karel Capek (that premiered in Czechoslovakia) is credited with coining the term "robot," a derivation of the Czech word robota meaning drudgery. The inter-war science fiction drama detailed a world that manufactured artificial people from synthetic organic material freeing humans of work and drudgery. However, due to their overproduction those roboti would lead humankind to destruction and annihilation.

Capek was a strong dissident voice during the period of fascist buildup in Europe in the 1920s and '30s.
