TYVM Karel Čapek! Your play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) opened on January 25, 1921.

Here's that Czech play in Italian with English subtitles!

Everybody likes robots!


  • "I'm Robert the robot, mechanical man. Drive me and steer me wherever you can."

    Had one of those, 60+ years ago. Can't believe I still remember the recording!
