The eight hottest robots in pop-culture history

Robots are everywhere. From helping us find cat videos on the Internet to assembling other robots (yeah, that can't end well), they've become almost as ubiquitous in real life as they have been in pop culture for years. This Saturday, the multimedia art exhibit Let's Pretend We're Robots opens at Good Thieves Press, celebrating both our robot pals and all the varieties of technology we associate with them. Inspired by this event celebrating the aesthetics of androids, we decided it was high time to have a look at the hottest robots pop culture has to offer. Don't feel too weird about being turned on by a machine, since we all lust after technology; some of us just do it more literally than others.
