Technology is great and robots are a great example of it. Throughout entertainment history our imaginations and fears have been stoked by the creative concepts of robots that could be the perfect servant or the most terrifying adversaries. The fun of robotic characters is that technology can come in any form, be built for anything and when they go out of their regular programming, it sets the scene for some crazy shenanigans.
