We spotted this ad as a sponsored post on Geekosystem a while back and now it seems to have made it’s way onto I09, originating as a viral created by General Electric and now a full on TV commercial for their “Brilliant Machines” campaign.
GE’s description of the robo flooded viral goes like this:
The robots are coming out of the woodwork to attend a mega-summit at an unknown location. A star-studded group that includes Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation), B-9 (Lost in Space), K.I.T.T. (Knight Rider), and Robby the Robot (Forbidden Planet) has gathered to get their first glimpse of the next generation of artificial intelligence – the “brilliant machines.”
The robots want to a firsthand look at the technology that will make machines work better and smarter. Join them to see how the new products from GE are integrating innovative technology with the ability to communicate, making the world work in ways never seen before. Join the revolution.
And as you can see they didn’t leave many out of the line up in a virtual who’s who of robot’s from TV and film. No Terminator though, which is a shame. Or maybe not since that would mean a future in which Skynet won and humans are currently dining on Rat burgers and looked at crumpled pictures of young Linda Hamilton for entertainment…..
