Here's the logo to "The Institute", the shadowy masters of robotics technology in "Fallout 4".
This is a breakdown drawing of a second generation Synth. They're pure robots without any self-awareness or functionality beyond their programming.
With that body form in mind, take a look at this comparison shot. On top is the Institute logo. Below it, the logo of another cutting edge robotics manufacturer.
Here's a closer look. What makes this second group particularly interesting is that it also had issues with killer robots going rogue and gaining sentience.
It's the logo of "Nova Laboratories", taken from the identification plate of their first generation robotic soldiers. These insidious machines were equipped with brutally effective laser weaponry and designed to carry out kamikaze attacks using nuclear weapons. Sound familiar?
Here's the robot the ID plate was attached to.
That's right. The whole Institute mess started with SAINT Prototype 5, better known as Johnny 5 from the 1986 movie "Short Circuit". Despite the primitive technology of the time even this robotic assassin could effectively disguise itself as a human.
The screencaps of the "Nova Laboratories" logo are taken from the very well done opening credit sequence. What's telling is that the computer aided manufacturing in the film is now garage technology. That certainly wasn't the case back in '86.
