Robot Turns Actor and plays (Apr, 1948)

Robot Turns Actor and plays

the role of a ”Martian” in a French production. Built by M. Koralek, noted French engineer, the 500-pound robot is seen at the left “rehearsing” with actress Mag Villars. At right. M. Koralek adjusts the robot’s mechanical brain via its spinal column.

    It still is – check out Craig Fergusen’s show’s robot. (He’s a hoot, btw, but really really strange.)

    Walt Disney would later develop robots to run off of magnetic tape (and that’s what you see all over the disney parks now.)

    What’s creepy about her robot love? She craved the kind of satisfaction that only something mechanical could provide. How strange is that? I guess it’s probably strange that she needed 500 pounds worth. Pound pound. Hee hee

    qyooqy: You just crack yourself up.

    More to the point I found some more references to this robot here

    Thanks for the link. It’s interesting that they decided to give the robot nipples.
