<robotics> (From "android") The robots of the Star Wars universe. While
androids look somewhat human-like, Star Wars' droids are typically fashioned in
the likeness of their creators or in a utilitarian design that stresses function
over appearance. Droids are equipped with artificial intelligence, though some
are naturally created smarter than others depending on the function they are
designed to serve.
"Droid" is a Lucasfilm Ltd. trademark.

[Was George Lucas really the first to use the abbreviation (in 1977)?]
