Engadget just broke a news story about how it 'appears' that Google may have misappropriated some artwork from an old Atary Lynx game (kudos if you had one back in the day, I did). The game in question is 'Gauntlet: The Third Encounter' and as you might have guessed features an Android shaped very similar to the Android robot that we know.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there are only so many million permutations of what the human typically envisions when they picture an "Android" in their head. Eventually, somewhere, your going to find that likeness on multiple products. I think it's going to be a stretch for conspiracy theorists to really believe that this icon is ripped from Atari's long forgotten arcade collection.
What are your thoughts?
