Blade Runner by Ridley Scott (1982) is a landmark in film-making dedicated to non-mechanical androids. The plot was inspired by Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (1968), while visual inspiration came from The Long Tomorrow, a 1976 comic by Moebius. Nirvana by Gabriele Salvatores stands out among Italian sci-fi movies. This 1997 film featured the subject of hybridization between the biological body and robotic devices, bringing to the big screen the themes of cyberpunk literature, like that of William Gibson's novel Neuromancer (1984). These same themes were once again addressed in Lana and Andy Wachowski's Matrix (1999), which was inspired by the Italian comics, in this case the Italian Razzi amari (1992) by Stefano Disegni and Massimo Caviglia. More recent films like Her (2013) and Ex Machina (2015) explore the nature of emotions in human-robots relationships thereby proposing new forms of hybridization which will further expand the collective imagination in the 21st-century.
