When was the 1st robot made?

The first commercial, digital and programmable robot was built by George Devop in 1954. This robot, named Unimate, was used to lift pieces of hot metal from die casting machines in New Jersey. To date, robots have replaced humans in performing dangerous and repetitive tasks. We see robots in factories, food courts, hospitals, airports and more. As a result, many start to worry about the potential repercussions on unemployment and livelihood in the future. However, no one can deny the convenience and safety that these machines have provided for us mankind.
