Re: look up the robot from 'lost in space'

The robot from Lost In Space (the TV show) was the epitome of what a robot should be: Clever, resourceful, possessed of a deadly weapon and ultra cool Steampunk-meets-the-Sixties aesthetics, and mounted on caterpillar tracks.

Contrast with the inexplicably tumbling android door-openers, non-avian Frisbees and one-armed track workers so-called "robotics experts" have managed to come up with so far. Ludicrous and ugly.

Plus, none of them can hold a proper conversation. The Robot could play chess, pontificate on Dr Smith's perfidy and drive The Chariot, all without need for supercomputer links, WiFi, Bluetooth or USB cables.
