Old robots

Whatever happened to Sentry the prototype police droid? Or Hubot the friendly all-around house bot that carried an Atari game machine for you? No one knows, but at least they’re not forgotten thanks to The Old Robots website. Here you can see what toy robot such as Max Steele looked like in the olden days of the 1980’s, to actual bi-pedal robots, and the more recent small robots that recently hit the commercial market.

See what the future may hold for robots through the course of history. Laugh at some ridiculous ideas, be in awe in the ones that have shaped our time, and dream with the ones that may hold the key to the future.

The Old Robots website has it all.

    Interesting. I honestly want my room filled with these collectibles.

    I'm actually scared of owning some of them. They might suddenly come to life in the middle of the evening, with their red eyes glowing and synthesized voices.

    Ah, but what good is it if they don't look threatening? At least we'll never be able to experience the uncanny valley. XD
