The Science Museum's big new exhibition will explore the last 500 years of robots, both in the artistic and scientific sense, and try and answer that age-old question: what does it mean to be human?

The exhibition will include a unique collection of over 100 robots including an articulated iron manikin from the 1500s, a 16th-century mechanical monk, a giant Italian robot with a glamorous past, right up to some modern-day marvels plucked straight from today's research labs.

Twelve of the robots will be working models... and if you're lucky you may even get the chance to interact with one.
