I know you all have suspected this, but now you finally have confirmation that it’s true; I am not a robot geek!
I correctly named three robots (or maybe four, but that would have been an accident, I assure you). Wow!
Failed as well. 56%
Kicked your ass! 88%. I think the question about Johnny 5 was a trick question.
Also failed with 38%. Embarassing fact: I’m a roboticist. However, these are primarily robots from movies — and I don’t really watch movies. Want a test with real robots!
Passed, 68%. And that wasn’t the proper Marvin.
75%. No feedback about which ones I got wrong though.
69% but I guessed on most of them, so call me lucky.
81%. Might have been an element of luck though, I had to guess the ones that looked like they were from comic books – I didn’t have a clue on them.
50% here, a couple correct guesses.
Ditto comment #4 about Marvin.
44%. Recognized a few, but mostly guessing.
I have not got a clew who most of the robots shown, or named, are.
And yea, that wasn’t the “real” Marvin.
but that’s because the test didn’t have the classics like Maria/maschinemench from Metropolis, Robbie from Forbidden Planet and Dr. Smith’s pal, the Robot from Lost in Space.
does not compute
Also failed, 56%
Ha! 94% For once I am ahead in these online polls!
I would like to know what I missed, though.
I recognized many of them, but was unsure of the names.
You FAILED with a 13%.
I shall watch more sci-fi movies
What? No Gort? This test is obviously bogus!
OK, I’m sour-grapesin’ here. I got 31%.
Klaatu barada nikto!
