This is very cool. Artist Richard Sargent dashed off this little sketch of, like, every robot ever made:
I think I’ve found WALL-E, as well as some of my other old robotic pals: R2-D2 and C-3PO of course, Klaatu, Bender, Rosie, B-9 from Lost in Space, and the Humping Robot. There are also a lot I don’t recognize, and some that I would just as soon forget like the lame ass robot from The Black Hole.
How many can you name? I’d love your input here (Input! Yeah, where’s Number 5?), but you can actually use the numbered guide and enter a contest to win a signed poster. Hurry though, the deadline is August 31.
OK, I’d better post this and do some house cleaning. Has anybody seen my Roomba?
PS. For cheating purposes, the source of all knowledge has a pretty good list of fictional robots.
PPS. I made a mistake up there, mad kudos to the first person who points it out.
PPPS. Number 5 isn’t who you think it is.
