Google introduced recently a a new feature called "news timeline"
http://newstimeline.googlelabs.com/
allows you to search news in the past.

So i took it for a spin and searched for what our ancestors thought of robots.

I found this gem of an article dated 1-March 1960 from St' Petersburg Times.

It talks about a new robot that will help housewifes with daily chores.

The robot's super brain resting in the closet or in the once occupied washtubb, will take orders from a dial manipulated by the housewife.... the homemaker will even be able to leave with the robot a message which a caller [when the house is empty], upon identifying himself, will be able to extract from the electronic marvel....
The housewife will dial the light and music for relaxation, intense effort, study, romance, or whatever activity her mood indicates..... in the simulated 1980 room, loudspeakers were replaced by handsome globes....
Experts also demonstrated how the robot will help serve the housewife by screening doorbell pushers and taking messages when the family is away
