Who doesn’t love a good robot? Popular culture has been OBSESSED with them for decades. Everyone loves cute little guys like R2-D2 or Wall-E. The only problem is that there are also really terrifying robots like the Terminator or Ultron that make robots seem like horrifying emotionless beings of steel who will undoubtedly destroy all. While that makes for great science fiction, it can undercut some of the terrific work many engineers and scientists are doing all around the world to make the coolest robots the future has promised all along.
For starters, we have NASA which has been developing cool robot astronauts that they call robonauts for years. Their latest is all set to go jogging on a foreign planet anytime soon. Then there are several other robots who have become famous for their advanced movement capabilities, the fact that they can hold full conversations or that they are just filled with charisma. Then there are the ones that are just built to absolutely destroy each other.
Of course, a big reason why robotics technology exists is for military application. There are plenty of robots that are in the works to assist soldiers in the field or even to act as combatants themselves. That’s still not as terrifying a concept as the robots that closely resemble human beings. They just look so creepy. Even if the technology used to create them is some of the most advanced work that’s ever been done in the field of robotics.
So which of these expensive robots are the coolest? Let’s find out!
