Top 10 robots that we'd marry

Love does compute

According to a new story , an AI researcher is predicting that advances in robotics will be so dramatic in the next 40 or so years, that humans will be marrying robots by 2050.

While we have some reservations about this concept, we have some thoughts about the types of robots that we'd love to marry.  Take a look at our picks for the most desirable bachelor and bachelorette robots around and let us know what you think!

False Maria (Metropolis, 1927)

The iconic robot from the 1927 silent film intrigues us in many ways. Sure, she might be just a pawn in an evil scheme to exploit the workers, but this is the first robot that has taken on a human-like form.

Rachael (Blade Runner, 1982)

The replicant who thinks she's a human, she's marked for termination but gets her pursuer (Deckard, played by Harrison Ford) to fall in love with her.

Optimus Prime (Transformers, 2007)

The leader of the Autobots (heroic robots from Cybertron) is not only a noble and compassionate lader who aims to improve the world around him, but he can also provide transportation (in the form of a semi-cab) on a moment's notice.

Fembots (Austin Powers movies)

Another race of evil female robots, we would have to use all of our mojo in order to tame them to make sure they didn't try to kill us. We still hold out hope that Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley) is not a Fembot, but is still being held captured somewhere by Dr. Evil.

R2-D2 (Star Wars)

We think C3-PO isn't really our type, we'd much rather have R2-D2 as our robot soul mate. Intuitive, funny and good in tight situations where you need to have your enemies zapped. We would need to work on the language barrier, but we could learn to interpret his bells and whistles.

Data (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

The "android's android" from Star Trek would be a perfect husband for a lucky lady. He's smart, handsome, and can remove his emotion chip whenever he wants. Plus, we hear he has all his working parts.

Rosie the Robot (Jetsons)

We have a soft spot in our hearts for Rosie, who never minded doing the housework for the Jetsons. While we would still let her clean the house for us if she wanted, we'd also let Rosie pursue more esoteric endeavors, like poetry or painting.

Terminators (T-X, Terminator Model 101, T-1000)

While these robots from the future are clearly evil and out to eliminate the human race, at least some of them can be re-programmed to protect us (the "good" one from T2 and T3). The more advanced models that can turn to liquid can be handy in situations where we need them to get into a locked car, for example.

Number 6 (Battlestar Galactica)

Men who are attracted to the "bad girls" will definitely go for Number 6, the Cylon infiltrator. Capable of adapting to human form and emotions, she can retain memories and be downloaded into another body if the original is killed.

Seven of Nine (Star Trek: Voyager)

She tops the list because of her attractive qualities, and also that she was one of the "evil" Borg who was rehabilitated and longs to become more human. We wouldn't mind being assimilated by 7, although we'd love to help her on her journey to become more human.
