11 Awesome Vintage Robots From The Past

These days (and thanks largely to Dr, Who, Terminator & I, Robot) we seem to be quite wary of the rise of robots & their potential capacity to one day take over and rule the world.

It's not without foundation either, there's been numerous studies showing that come 2050 - technology will be so advance in the field of robotics, that computers will likely be able to execute 100 trillion instructions per second rivaling human intelligence.

And then we all know what happens next with Skynet. Oh and did we mention that just recently, a robot actually recognized itself in the mirror.

But rewind 70 years or so and robots weren't viewed with such distrust - in fact they often invoked a sense of awe and wonder amongst the public. They might have been primitive in design, but they certainly captured the imagination of the humans they came into contact with.

So with that in mind, here's 11 vintage and unusually awesome robots from the past. Let's face it, it's not every day you see a giant robot on the beach is it?
