I now have my most favorite movie robot "Dewey" from the 1972 film Silent Running. There is a classic part of the film where the Drones play cards with Bruce Dern and beat him!

If you have never seen how cool these robots were, here is Dewey at the end of the film looking after the last of the Earths plant life in whats left of the space freighter Valley Forge.

The robot is not walking yet as I am looking into the best way to do it. In the film the robots actually had humans (amputees) inside walking on their hands this is why they look so amazing when they move around.
