We all dream of (and fear) a future ran by machines that can manage our dirty chores, construct buildings, and fight our wars. Truth is we're probably a few centuries away from living the futuristic realm of Deep Space Nine, or better yet, The Jetsons.

So pull your circuitry together and take a good look at the 10 Coolest Real-Life Robots.
