Top 10 Movie Robots
Robots have been appearing in movies for nearly 100 years. They can be cute, cool, scary or just plain annoying, but one things for sure, everyone seems to love them.
The term "robot" was first used by Czech playwright Karel Capek in his stage production R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots). Capek attributed the creation of the word to his brother, Josef. It's derived from the Czech word "robota", which literally translates as "work" or "labour".
Writer Isaac Asimov coined the term "robotics" in 1941, and then famously invented its three "laws".
I have been quite strict with the criteria for this list. Cyborgs have been disqualified, as have human-like androids.
Just out of the Top 10: Gort (Day the Earth Stood Still), Maximillian (The Black Hole), Hector (Saturn 3).
