Robots have been at the heart of popular culture since the word ‘robot’ was first used in 1920s. On 8 February 2017, the London Science Museum’s new Robot exhibition opens its door to public, exploring this very human obsession to recreate ourselves, and reveals the remarkable 500-year story of humanoid robots.

Cygan is a performer. It's built in 1957. It's born in Italy. And he had a remarkable sort of richest of story. So Cygan likes so many robots at that time as a performer, a showman. 
 
He was in cinema or in the theatres and places like that. We got a lovely film of him dancing within an evening dress.
