Popular Culture has given us a wide array of memorable characters that, over time have become distinctly iconic. This project highlights specifically those non human, non animal characters from TV, Video Games, Cinema, and Comics that give us every reason to feel nostalgic. Inspired by Robert Ball’s Goodies & Baddies Prints, I wanted to highlight robots whom I believed to be transcendental across the pop culture landscape including classic robots, modern robots and even some non-robots robots.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Where’s Robot, from Lost In Space?

  2. Funny I just watched the movie Sleeper the other night. I had not seen it in years. Not to be picky but he wasn’t a robot (Miles), he was just dressed like one to hide from the police. Not sure why he is in the list but oh well.

    I agree Robot from Lost in Space should be here.

    I never considered HAL a robot.

  3. I’d also rather like to the the Original Marvin as well. Didn’t like the ping-pong ball one much.

  4. Where is Johnny 5 from Short Circuit?

  5. Cybermen aren’t robots, they’re cyborgs!

  6. Isn’t #24 “Robbie the Robot” the one from Lost in Space?

  7. Oop. After a quick search, I see it’s not. A few similarities though…

    Scroll about a fourth of the way down to see them side-by side…
