A robot from the future that never was

There’s something sad about retro-futurism — the perception of people in the past about what the present or future would look like (think “The Jetsons”). Despite all our hand computers and robots on Mars, we still don’t have practical flying cars or robot butlers.

So it is with a twinge of regret for a future that never came to pass that I share this excellent vintage robot by Jeffrey Heuer (Norweasel). The legs are fully articulated, and he looks like he’s wearing a monocle.
