Wired Science has put together this gallery of animal robots that range from worms, fishes all the way to dogs. Don't be confused, these aren't toys for kids, but the progenitors of hard-working purpose-designed machines that will work with us (or for us more likely) in the future.
Furby, AIBO and Pleo might be fantastic robot pets, but can they carry hundreds of pounds, outrun a human or lead a school of fish? We think not.
