Words matter. These are the best Robot Quotes from famous people such as Pamela Adlon, Flume, Grant Imahara, Justin Thomas, Bill Budge, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I love that, ‘mommy-shaming.’ When I was a new mom, I was obsessed with how I was being perceived and trying to fit in as a mom, going to mommy-and-me classes and things like that, and never quite measuring up to ‘the real moms,’ the ‘robot moms,’ as I called them.
To me, skin is alien and kind of weird; it weirds me out. It’s strange, but it’s also really intimate and personal; it’s living, organic. That’s how I want the music to sound; I want it to feel alien and strange, but also like it’s got a heartbeat, like it’s got a soul, like it’s not made by a robot.
When you think about exploring deep space, it’s very dangerous for humans. To potentially sacrifice human life is a delicate proposition. On the flip side, if you want to send a robot to another planet for an extended period of time and at some point you know it’ll cease to function, it’s not considered a tragedy.
But I do always want to be honest, because if you have something in your head that you would like changed or that you think some way, then, I mean, I’m not going to sit up here and be a robot and lie to you. It’s not fair to you, it’s not fair to me.
On the robot kit, I can choose very boring parts or I can choose exciting and interesting parts. That is a reflection of my personality and the kinds of things I am interested in.
In 1968 when I was in high school I built a four-foot-tall remote control robot with pneumatic cylinders that operated his hands. My robot won first place at a science competition at the University of Alabama where my high school was the only African-American school represented. That was a huge moral victory.
We didn’t use the shuttle robot arm before, so this has been a training flow to get ready for that.
Personally, I’m not afraid of a robot uprising. The benefits far outweigh the threats.
‘Baymax’ is quite different. I think when Don Hall found the title and didn’t know it, he researched and saw great potential in the relationship between a boy and a robot.
I don’t ever watch myself. By watching, you try to perfect yourself, become a robot.
If I’m backed into a corner, the first thing that comes to mind is the robot from Forbidden Planet. But that could be me trying to be kitschy, cool, and cultural, because the real answer is R2D2.
I think there’s a part when you sign your soul to the devil and start working in Los Angeles that you also sign away that you could be a human being in anyone’s eye. You’re like a robot!
When I was a kid, I’d wake up extraordinarily early every morning and turn on the television, scanning for episodes of ‘The Jetsons.’ For some reason, I loved the notion of a future where there would be flying cars, supercomputers, and most of all, robot maids to take care of the chores.
The name Crow was inspired by a number of things. I thought it would be cool to have a robot with sort of a Native American feel to it.

Who knows if I would get to do ‘Mr. Robot’ if I was on ‘Mr. Robinson?’
‘Pump Up the Volume’ was a film and character that I really responded to. That was a movie about a guy trying to take down the establishment using a ham radio. I feel ‘Mr. Robot’ has a similar value. This show is about taking down a global empire. I was an anarchist then. I’m getting to be an anarchist again.
The idea that a robot will become more aware of its environment, that telling it to ‘go to the kitchen’ means something – navigation and understanding of the environment is a robot problem. Those are the technological frontiers of the robotics industry.
When I was fighting, I would look to excite the crowds with a bolo punch or something taunting. Looking back, they were legal – but not sportsmanlike. I don’t recommend another boxer try them. But we looked more to make the robot fights dramatic first and realistic second.
When I first created the world of ‘Mr. Robot,’ I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following.
‘I Am Legend’ is quite unusual for its time. I just wanted to write a story about female boxers, and I couldn’t get that going in my mind. I don’t know exactly where the idea of just a man pitting himself against a robot boxer came from.
If I say ‘Find me an interesting painting’ to Google, someday a robot could go around the Picasso museum and take a picture for me.
Did Google need to make robot cars in order to make Streetview work? Absolutely not. It’s the equivalent of saying you need a walking robot in order to push an upright vacuum cleaner. It’s gratuitous robotics!
I would love a robot butler.
A lot of unexpected things do happen on ‘Mr. Robot.’
You’re not a robot, you’re not going to be nine out of 10 every game. But when things aren’t going well, you work even harder and look for a reaction.
If it was going to be unique, if you’re going to make a robot movie in 2011… it had to be different, and it had to be about more than its machines and more than its action.

I have five, six, seven things I do before those lines are in my brain. I say them like I’m a robot; I sing them. I put a pencil in my mouth, and I say them. I cook. I play with a cushion and say them – so they really are inside of me.
I’m not a robot.
If you make your robot look exactly like Albert Einstein, then the robot better be as smart as Einstein, or its user is going to feel cheated.
Most of the robots being developed for home use are functional in design – Gecko’s homecare robot looks rather like the Star Wars robot R2-D2. Honda and Sony are designing robots that look more like the same movie’s ‘android’ C-3PO.
People see me on the court only as a superhero, grunting and winning. They think you’re a robot, and I’m not.
The image of the robot is very important to us, it’s very stimulating to people’s imaginations.

People give me things at shows-the Robot from Japan. What I would treasure the most is a little doll of the general from the movie-and if they don’t make it, I’ll make my own and bring it to shows and sign it.
I don’t agree with any form of butler, so definitely not a robot one. It’s lazy, so a bad idea.
‘Mr. Robot’ is more directly about technology, and ‘Homecoming’ deals more with the pharmaceutical industry, but I think they’re all part and parcel of this growing sense that things are happening behind the scenes at our expense, and we’re not aware of it.
I was approached by my agent, who said they were interested in me for ‘Mr. Robot’. Then I binge-watched the show, and I was like, ‘Uh, I would like this. Show me how I’m gonna fit in there, but yeah, I would love it.’
There are things that I invented – the creaky geriatric robot that is always grumpy, for example, or the little wheelie guy, he’s not in the Hasbro lore. But kids love that stuff – this little guy as a pet on a chain. They gravitate towards it.
I think a robot butler would be a great idea for certain things. But the idea of anybody coming into my bedroom and doing stuff for me, besides my wife and I – such as giving you tea in the morning – I just find a bit irksome.
There are many things to like about ‘Mr. Robot,’ the most ephemeral and yet memorable of them being the opening credits.
On ‘Robot Chicken’ we parodied a lot of things but it was done out of love.
The general public perception is that fighting robots were popular, and then went away for a long time, but in reality, there have been live robot combat events happening continuously since 1994. And all the while, the robots have been getting better and meaner and tougher.
The story of ‘Mr. Robot’ is really about this guy who’s lonely – who’s alone and feels so disconnected from the world.
If you build a robot, you’re welding, machining sculpting, casting, dealing with electronics and hydraulics.
