OK, so this illustrated timeline of fictional robots [and androids] isn’t perfect. Daleks aren’t technically robots, for one, so as far as Doctor Who is concerned the Cybermen might have been a better inclusion. (But are Cybermen technically robots if they have human brains? Discuss amongst yourselves.)
But I like it. And if there’s an image that includes R2-D2 and C-3PO, the Iron Giant, the Mariabot from Metropolis, Marvin the Paranoid Android, and The Muppets‘ 80s Robot, would you honestly expect me not to share it with you?
The entire (huge) image, by Taryn Wellman, is after the jump.
