It was only a matter of time before these three loves would come together in one awesome project.
Pop Culture Robots, a Historical Study is an anthropological review of the robots that have graced the pages of our comic books, entertained us in novels and dazzled us on many different types of screens in recent human history.
Bender is a very cheeky industrial metalworking robot built in 2996 and is a leading character in Matt Groening’s much-loved Futurama (1999 TV Series). He was made in Fábrica Robótica De La Madre (Spanish: “Mom’s Robot Factory”), a manufacturing facility of Mom’s Friendly Robot Company in Tijuana, Mexico but he ends up living in New New York City working with his friends, the crew of the Planet Express delivery space ship. Bender’s wit and disregard for humanity doesn’t get in the way of eventually looking out for his friends. If you haven’t already watched Futurama, then do yourself a favour.
I will be publishing 15 robot profiles over the coming weeks. Feel free to share on social media (please link back to my site).
