The word ‘Android’ means a human with a male robot appearance

The word ‘Android’ means a human with a male robot appearance.

The word “Android” was coined from the Greek root ἀνδρ- andr-, “man” (male, as opposed to ἀνθρωπ- anthrōp-, human being) and the suffix -oid, “having the form or likeness of”.

While the term “android” is used in reference to human-looking robots in general, a robot with a female appearance can also be referred to as a “gynoid”.

Next Fact: Android logo is actually called Bugdroid.
