“I understand anthrobotics as the study of human-robot cohabitation or merging. As far as I can tell, the word anthrobotics was originally coined by roboticist Mark Rosheim in a paper entitled ‘Design of An Omnidirectional Arm’, in 1990. Rosheim derived the term from “anthropomorphic and robotics to distinguish the new generation of dexterous robots from its simple industrial robot forbears.” In a wider definition of the term anthrobotics, the concept is derived from anthropology or anthropos (human) rather than only anthropomorphic.” Luis de Miranda
