  But at least they _looked_functional_.
  There's something 'stylish' or 'beautiful' about form and function.

  Pasting a giant blue cross on your featureless white robot is _not_!!!

  Probably for name recognition, maybe they thought it would give them an
'in' with American companies in hollywood or something?
