The best 50 robots of all time

Wired Magazine has a story about the best 50 robots of all time. Stanley, the Stanford Racing Team's autonomous vehicle is at number 1. Astroboy and Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity take the 2nd and 3rd spot respectively. My favourite robot, Optimus Prime is also in the list! From Wired:
34. OPTIMUS PRIME
Robots are cool. Robots that turn into giant trucks - way cool. Robots that turn into giant trucks and command a fleet of autobots - now that could change pop culture history. Such was the impact of the Transformer when the toy line was introduced in 1984, spawning decades of TV shows, movies, and comic books.
