🤖 Who was the first robot in history? Jacques de Vaucanson

History of the beginnings of robotics and robots

In the year 1738, the first robotic pet in history, or the first automaton, appeared. It was made by Jacques de Vaucanson, who from a very young age, and despite the poverty in which he lived, surprised everyone with his creative capacity.

It was so that one day in the church he carefully observed the operation of the chapel clock. He managed to make a similar one a few weeks later.

The fact was not lost on Vaucanson’s widowed mother, who sent him to study with the Jesuits because of her eloquent talent.

The manufacture of the watch was the inspiration for what would come later. It seems that Vaucanson intended to create the first robots in history, which seemed real.
