Hi Elizabeth, What era was K-9? Does it go back to the 60s? Maybe it will show up in one of the slide shows that cover decades after the 60s.

K-9?

This is a fun slideshow, but while you mention Dr. Who, what about K-9?? I actually wrote a whole article about this robot for another publication last year on the anniversary of the show. K-9 was so popular, he got his own spinoff!

I guess that I missed the parody of IBM in 2001. But it was a rude awakening about the way the highpitched shills screamed that it was a great movie. It was one of the biggest wastes of money and time as far as movies go. Still, I would call 2001 JUNK. Even despite having an actual plot.

Rob,

I really enjoyed the slides about these movie type robots. I can remember as a kid, I wanted a Robot from the TV show Lost and Space. When I received an erector set for Christmas, I immediately tried to build it. Very nice slide deck and thank you for the found memories!

Yes, I remember Westworld, Chuck. If i'm not mistaken, it was Yul Brynner's final movie.

I once saw/heard an interview with Arthur C. Clark where he made this comment, I do not know if it was the one I referenced. However, it's been so long that I would hate to try and quote it.

But I too had heard this same HAL/IBM for so long that I believed it until I heard the interview. I also read it again not too long ago.

Interesting point about Arthur C. Clarke. I have to admit that I bought the IBM/HAL story, too. It just seemed so believable.
