Robots! 50 robot tees

I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of tee’s that are robot based on the internet, designers must like drawing robots, presumably people must like drawing tees with robots on. So for little reason other than being bored and having way too much time on my hands, I decided to compile a list of them.

Since this list is quite long, I’ve put it behind a break so that the front page of the blog maintains some kind of normalcy.

*Update* If you’re on the hunt for long lists of t-shirts, there is a newer list of 101 Robot t-shirts that I wrote in June 2009. If you’re not entirely robot obsessed please check out this huge collection of t-shirt lists (from lots of different sites, not just this one), or the lists category. Also, if you enjoyed this post, it would be very much appreciated it if you mentioned it on twitter, facebook, or another other form of social media like digg, stumbleupon or delicious.

So here they are, in no particular order (be aware, some links are to affiliates).

1. What better way to kick off this list than to have a design with around 20 robots on it, each designed by a different artist. $20 Link

So, what have we learnt? People seem to want robots to be as human as possible, in none of these tees were robots specifically doing the bidding of the people that created them, and whilst there does seem to be a lot of sad robots out there, there’s seems to be an almost equal amount dancing!
