How to rebuild a robot from the 1920s

Originally built in 1928 by Captain Richards & A.H. Reffell, Eric was one of the world’s first robots and was built less than a decade after the word robot was first used.

In May 2016, 861 backers joined our Kickstarter campaign to bring Eric back to life. Thanks to this support, the Science Museum worked with artist and robot builder Giles Walker to recreate Eric, keeping his appearance as close to the original as possible.

This documentary was filmed over the summer of 2016
