Screen Machines is a promotional artwork that highlights SOME of our favourite robots from various media. The poster features a wide range of familiar characters — from classic science-fiction books and movies such as Marvin (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), R2D2 (Star Wars), and HAL 9000 (2001: A Space Odyssey) to more child-friendly robots Iron Giant, WALL·E, and Eve. Screen Machines also pays tribute to our generation’s iconic robots from cult TV programs like the Dalek – EXTERMINATE! – from Doctor Who and Futurama‘s Bender.
Real-life robots can vacuum floors or perform major surgeries, but they lack personalities. They don’t have Bender’s sleaziness, Marvin’s gloominess, or even the Daleks’ human-like qualities.
The infographic was designed by Flokk Creative Ltd, the trading name of UK-based freelance graphic designer and illustrator David Wildish.
