1954 – Robert the Robot & 1955 – Arthur the Robot – Kirt Golden (American)
(above) Robert the Robot is the first robot built by Kirt Golden in 1954.
Interesting robot built by Kirt Golden, age 16 at the time (1955). Limited budget led him to realize that one dextrous arm is sufficient to perform most tasks. For a small robot, it had sufficient weight and power to push a rotary lawn-mower.
