I don't believe there is an accepted collective noun for robots. You know, something akin to a gaggle of geese or a pod of whales. Or, more picturesquely: A crash of rhinoceros, an exaltation of larks, a knot of toads, a sloth of bears, a charm of hummingbirds, a murder of crows, an implausibility of gnu, an ostentation of peacocks, or a flange of baboon. No, really.

While Gregory's idea is v v good, I think a tribute to the man who really brought the term into vogue is fitting proper and above all, awesome.
