What do AIBO the robot dog, the Mars rover and C-3PO have in common? They’re all in the Robot Hall of Fame. It’s online, not in a building someplace, so visiting is free.
The Robot Hall of Fame, a project of Carnegie Mellon, honors “landmark achievements in robotics technology and the increasing contributions of robots to human endeavors.” Both real and fictional robots are eligible, which is how Gort from The Day The Earth Stood Still made the cut. The question for 2007: are the Cylons from Battlestar Gallactica too evil to be inducted?
