An humanoid is a creature or an artificial being whose form remains the one of a human being (typically: one torso, two arms, two legs, one head). The resemblance can be either very far or very close (so we speak often of a “humaniform” being).
Science fiction may be defined as that branch of literature which deals with the response of human beings to advances in science and technology.
