Old Robots Website: valuable archive of toybots

Vintage toys, vintage bots! I encourage you, to linge across this website, with a good collection of old toy-robots. And lots of good ideas ahead, because most of the things you will find in the online-museum were sooner or later turned into commercial, toy or industrial robots. Look for example at this early platform Omnirobot and compare it to this robotic mobility platform from Segway. You see the differences?

As you will see, the Omnibot was guaranteed the most important toy-bot back in the days. I can remember dreaming of this robot for months in my childhood days.

The old-robots archive is a good source for researchers and robotic designers, so why not take the chance to dive into good old wisdom?
