Haha, Zippy, I dare to say, NO! Some Bond women were brunettes, especially in the later series. I'm thinking of Halle Berry and Eva Green. Barbara Bach also was a hot brunette Bond girl during the Roger Moore era. But I suppose I digress! We were talking about fembots here. ;)
Of course this film, and many other of Robin William's works, came up during our family conversation last night. So sad.
Didn't do well at the box office but I think everyone expected it to be a laff-riot robot movie and were stunned to find out it wasn't.
In general, I thought it was a very intelligent movie that raised good questions about the deep future of robots in our society.
Yes, Iron Giant...another great film!
Great list! I don't recognize many of those robots, though. I guess I didn't see many movies during the 90's! There was not too much time in between soccer games, science fairs, history days, and Scout campouts!
Thinking of a bit more polite robots, I think Weebo from Flubber should have been in the list. It would have made the list more polite and cuter. It was not a complete robot but the idea was quite nice. I don't know about you but i really liked Weebo.
We know that the inclusion of Robin Williams on the front page was coincidental, since this article appeared 12 hours before the news about him was released. How sad. I enjoyed his work. He will be missed.
It's funny how most of the bots portrayed in films during this time are mainly menacing, with a few exceptions. Then of course there are the Fembots! I forgot about them, but how could I? They provided a lot of humor in the Austin Powers series...as a brunette, I think it would have been nice if these devastatingly attractive female robots weren't just blondes!
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
