How far we've come in just twenty years!

A buddy of mine found these great classics...


Cool. Only about $8000 
 
Here's the original link w/download. They're trying to get some inside pics from Steve Hodges (owner/CEO/etc of SynPet). Check back in June.

Newton was loaded with tech! I wonder what happened to the engineer(s) that made him?

And soooo many other failed robot products . . .

I guess the moral of the story is: I need theme music for my ERP ;D

And there is just something about a Crackbot that makes me want more of it . . .

I would LOVE to see today's equivalent with updated technology!  That'd be awesome!
