Was it really intentional to describe a radioactive wasteland as "New Jersey BEFORE an apocalypse"?

I have been to Gary, Indiana but I have never seen New Jersey.

Rob--these slides do bring back memories.  The thing that fascinates me about the robotic characters is the computer graphics used to develop the story line.  My dream job would to work for PIXAR or some other motion picture concern to develop these 'bots virtually.  I think that would be really fun.  Great slide show.

Now that this list has moved into the 90's, does the category robot still apply??

Maybe it's semantics but what about androids, vocaloids. and all the other 'oids?

The Terminator and Bishop transcended robot lists from the 80's!

Testament that the 80's was the best for bots!

The eyes on the Robot Jox look like DB15 connectors, that sort of reminds me of the ED209 in Robocop.  I always thought that the body was a Sennheiser microphone.

During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
