Mars Rovers, Roomba and the Terminator enter the Robot Hall of Fame

I think congratulations are in order! The official Robot Hall of Fame is inducting several new members into its illustrious ranks. Along with Spirit, Opportunity, Roomba, and the original Terminator, the terrifying Da Vinci surgical bot and Huey, Dewey and Louie, some old-school droids from Silent Running will number themselves among the elite.

The announcement by Carnegie Mellon University details their accomplishments and says there will be a ceremony, but not till 2010. Let’s hear it for these brave bots, even though they are indicative of the growing reliance upon machines that will be our downfall in the coming Robocalypse.
