Question
How do you get the robot to move and how you got the electricity in the robot?

Answer
Robots are typically powered by electrical apparatus.  Motors that drive the moving parts are under electronic control to move the arms, legs, fingers or robot parts.  They will need charging or battery replacement or some form of energy, either community power line or some form of alternate energy source.   In manufacturing many robots are powered by hydraulic pistons or mechanical arms that are driven by pulley and lever type actions.
