Around 1700 – 1900 there was a number of automatons that were created some of which including a famous mechanical duck made by Jacques de Vaucanson that could crane its neck, flap its wings and even swallow food. The first human-robot was made in 1810 by Friedrich Kaufmann. The robot was a soldier with a trumpet.
