"If you don't care about science enough to be interested in it on its own, you shouldn't try to write hard science fiction."
- Frederik Pohl

Robant  
  A robotic servant.  

Behind Norton came a withered old woman. Beside her moved a gleaming robant, a towering robot servant, supporting her with his arm. The robant and the tiny old woman entered the control room slowly...

"Irma Vincent Gordon," Andrews murmured. He glanced up. "Is that right?"

The old woman did not move.

"She is totally deaf, sir," the robant said.

From The Impossible Planet, by Philip K. Dick.
