i only started this blog a week ago – and it has worked to inspire friends of mine who would ordinarily never admit an interest in such things to notice robots and robot-like things just about everywhere. and of course i’ve started to notice them in more places than just my google reader feed. as it’s sunday, and it was a slightly rough weekend of my own making, i think i’ll refrain from undue philosophizing and just show you what people sent me…

also, courtesy of Cagney, and for those out in the pacific northwest, this fantastic tip: turns out there is a second museum within the Experience Music Project called the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame. they currently have an exhibit entitled Robots: A Designer’s Collection of Miniature Mechanical Marvels. a few choice images below:
finally, i noticed these robots just walking around the city the last few days. this one i noticed on 1st avenue around 4th street on the side of a mailbox.
and this one carved into the sidewalk in williamsburg.
