We were already fans of The Big Picture, a series of pictorial articles hosted by The Boston Globe. Now that they've tossed in a bunch of high resolution shots of robots, however, we're absolutely in love.
Readers of DVICE will recognize many of the 'bots featured in TBP's retrospective. Take Wakamaru, for instance, which went from greeting guests at UNIQLO to acting on stage. There's also the da Vinci robotic surgical system, the HAL exoskeleton and even that crazy fire rescue robot that scoops you up. and devours you to save you.
Check out the gallery below for some of our favorites from the retrospective, and head on over to The Big Picture for much, much more.
