Boy, I missed almost all of those!  Guess I was busy doing other things during the 90's !

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.

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.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
