I want my own personal robot. I always have. I wrote about a personal robot named Jibo a few months ago. Even more than that, I want to build a robot or an AI of some sort. My inspiration and love of robots comes from the movies I’ve watched over the years. I can think of so many classic robots that have made an impact on my life.
My earliest memory of seeing a robot in a movie was in Blade Runner. Those replicants stayed with me for years. They aren’t listed in the infographic below, but perhaps that is because they weren’t technically robots I suppose. They were bioengineered androids that looked exactly like human beings on the outside.
