And the coolest robots of 2016 are...

These impressive bots danced, folded, and talked their way into our countdown.

Robots are becoming more and more ubiquitous in our daily lives, but these seven bots stole the show in 2016.

The Zenbo personal assistant robot can be a caretaker and entertainer. While Boston Dynamic's SpotMini will help you do the dishes, preserve the planet by recycling, and even bring you a coke. Got a pile of clean laundry? Laundroid will fold it for you...just make sure to give it a few hours to finish the job.

Feeling lonely on that long road trip? Kirobo Mini will chat with you, as long as your trip's shorter than 2 and a half hours. Amelia will show you the way at the airport and even take a selfie. And Sophia...wow she looks so human! As long as you disregard her giant see-through computer brain.

And last but not least, the First Law will make you question AI and the whole human/robot relationship with a simple prick to the finger.
