Have we become used to robots these days, because it seems that while we are surrounded by robots, androids, drones and computers, we tend to take little notice anymore. Yet in the 1960’s things were very different as the very idea of a robot were things of science fiction. As this NASA video shows, they were experimenting with robots to test new spacesuit designs and you can clearly see the connection between reality and science fiction.
This video shows testing conducted in the 1960s on a NASA Android. The Android is now on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA. Video courtesy of NASA.
