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.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
