Vintage Robots: Coin Operated, Penny Arcade Robot-Games

Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum got a wonderful website with the history and collection of vintage, coin-operated robot-games, that were popular during the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s - until the era of the videogames finally breaked through. It is funny though, because nowadays robots are slowly, but surely on its way, to replace the dominance of videogames by doing robotics again (ok, this is future-music).

Nevertheless, feel free to stumble in this great archive of old robot-machines and you will meet, fortune tellers, cranes and driggers, even mechanical driving- and gun-games and more coin-operated entertainment machines from the past.
