Now, I know all of that, I also know the technical terms for the "arms" are "waldoes". But the romantic in me calls it a robot...being a lifelong Science-Fiction freak, I can't help it.

Looking at the pic, ummm...I question your sense of romance. To me, that looks like s/thing out of a nightmare involving a visit to the gynecologist...
