All Time 50 Best Robots

Last Year Wired put out there list of 50 Best Robots. I not sure what criteria they used to generate and rank this list, but it’s a sure bet that you will not guess #1

Here are some favorite bots and their rankings.

#19. R2-D2
R2-D2 and C-3PO - the Abbott and Costello of space - may be the most popular robots in history, but it's the littler one that really steals the show.

Few robots can trace their origins to Shakespeare. Robby, from the 1956 film Forbidden Planet, was inspired by Ariel in The Tempest

Some robots sit in labs for researchers to tinker with. These two bots are on frickin' Mars
