This latest top 5 involves a subjective determination of the coolest robots ever to appear in a movie, including androids. Exhaustive research, including a lifetime of watching robots in movies, led to this culminating point in my career. The response on Twitter and Facebook when I asked for suggestions was overwhelming.
In fact, it will probably spin off into two more episodes. There are enough TV robots out there to do a separate top 5 just on cool robots of the small screen. And we might even squeeze out a top 5 real robots. They're actually getting cool enough to do it.
In the meantime, I promised I would post the full list of robot suggestions I got on the Web, so here you go. Watch the video for the top 5, and the full list of suggestions comes after the jump. It's a pretty long list. Just goes to show, nothing beats the hive mind.
B9 (The Robot)
Crow T. Robot
Johnny Sokko's flying robot
Marvin the paranoid android
Rosie the robot
