Who doesn't love a cool robot in a movie or TV show? Robots are awesome… when they aren't trying to rise up and take over the world. “Science Bob” Pflugfelder created a fun visual aid that points out all of the famous pop-culture robots from movies, television shows, and comics. Here's what he had to say about his reference guide:
"There’s something about robots that people connect to. I knew as soon as I left the theater after watching Star Wars that I would someday have my own R2-D2, (which I now do!) So I decided to ask the followers of my Facebook Page to tell me their favorite robot, and I got a huge response. Below are some of the favorites, and the approximate time that they made their first appearance. I included cyborgs (robotically modified humans) as well as some real robots that were mentioned."
