The interesting comments make this an even better post to review: click here so see all of the comments
- I hate robots — but I love this.
In the original film Gort stands 8 feet tall and is said to be a kind of Peace keeping robot for the universe. His distinct features are his height, his desire not to talk and his powerful laser beam that can vaporize anything it hits. He also came down to earth from a flying saucer and claims that he was given the power to destroy earth if he had to by his maker. Gort remains motionless in front of the saucer, which rests on the National Mall in Central Washington D.C.
His famous line "Kaatu barada nikto!", The phrase was never translated in the film and neither Edmund North nor 20th Century Fox ever released an official translation.
|Robby The Robot – Forbbiden Planet (1956)|
The classic robot, Robby was a hit when Forbidden Planet came out. He is the typical old school robot and has the ability to reconstruct anything that you insert inside him. He has artificial intelligence although it seems a bit weird how he thinks. Robby can talk although he really doesn’t have a mouth but a sort of organ that lights up whenever sound is produced.
|HAL 9000 – Space Odyssey (1968) |
Its name stands for Heuristically programmed Algorithmic computer and is depicted by a type of camera or round light that can talk. HAL is an onboard computer, basically an artificial intelligence that played the villain in the Space Odyssey. He was built so well and programmed with human psyche that even he did not notice that he had acquired human flaws. He basically demonstrates an internal conflict between the desire to meet the objective and the desire to continue existing. Clearly this fictional character was put in place to depict how human beings also go through such internal battles. HAL basically malfunctioned because he could not properly decide if he should prioritize the mission or his own existence.
