A little Robot History
April 2, 2012
I don't know if there are a lot of classic Robot enthusiasts on this site, but this story caught my ear on the way home tonight:
I remember seeing old grainy footage of Elektro and Sparko (or something very similar) as a kid and emulating them in cardboard. It wasn't quite as cool as the real thing. 100 Internet points to anyone who replicates the 78rpm record player "voice synthesizer." It would be interesting to see a schematic on that.
