Will The Real Vincent Robot Please Stand Up? (Video)
We posted a video yesterday featuring the 1980's CompuRobot marketed by Axlon, one of Nolan Bushnell's companies, and made mention of the fact that the robot bore more than a passing resemblance to Vincent from the Disney "Black Hole" movie.
It turns out that there actually was a remote controlled Vincent robot produced by Mego, as you can see from the television commercial video below.
We were alerted to this video by Sprocket2Cog, one of our favorite Australian robot builders, hackers, and all around great guy.
