The beginning of April brings with it many things. Spring weather. April Fool’s Day. The opening weekend of Major League Baseball’s new season. The impending resolution of March Madness, ironically enough.
We here at the Axis of Ego would like to shine a bright light on another aspect of the fourth month of the year.
As most of you who went to an accredited college know, April is Robot History Month. All month long, we’ll be celebrating the courage and sacrifices of these proud automatons as they paved the way for the androids of the twenty-first century and beyond to rise up from humble origins of servitude to one day subjugate humanity.
Keep watching throughout April as we present as much robot-related content as we can muster in recognition of the struggles and triumphs of the past—and the present. Check back next week for the first in a series of indeterminate number of articles.
Finally, to our mechanical brethren (and future masters): Happy Robot History Month!
