THE OLD ROBOT'S WEB SITE : Omnibot ® 5402
I dream. . . . . . . . When I was created or born in the 1980's, I was one of the few and select robots that had a purpose, to play, teach and entertain. I was young, didn't have a onboard computer, but didn't need one at the time. Besides, they were not readily available and need by me for my purpose. Who say's a robot must always have a computer.
I could move around in all directions, learn, teach, sleep, wake up and move around to pre-programmed functions, tell time, talk from others, talk on my own after pre recording, had my own limited language, carry things, sing and entertain. I stimulated people to dream of new ideas for science and technology when they were young. Young minds looked at me and taught of ways to improve and give me more functions, grew up and invented them, but put them on others.
I dreamed of growing up and doing more things, I waited and waited. Even though I traveled around the world, was international in all areas, (all countries knew of me or sold me) my brothers and sisters did become famous through the movies, and I was regulated to my everyday tasks.
So I waited and dreamed of growing up and doing greater things. It has been over twenty-three years and to a robot that is like being over a (100) hundred years old. I have been put in attics, garages, and basements thrown away into the junkyards and forgotten.
But I am persistent, I still live and still I dream. I will survive; I am tough, versatile and have hopes and dreams of my purpose for a future. I wait and I dream . . . . . . . . .

The Old Robots Web Site on the Web; "I am the blogger at RobotShop.com and I just wrote a post about The Old Robots. What a nice website you have! Your collection is just amazing." My thanks to Vincent and See : Robotshop.com
The Old Robots Web Site on the Web; Someone at Robot’s Dreams just posted a link and a tiny snapshot of The Old Robots Website, nothing else; no intro, not even a goodbye. After spending nearly an hour at said website, I think I now know why: whoever posted that link must have been so eager to go back to browsing The Old Robots Website that he or she couldn’t be bothered with typing something else other than the link.
Thanks to and See : Technabob :
The Old Robots Web Site on the Web; About a month ago, my husband sent me a link to this amazing robot site called The Old Robots. It is one of the best catalogued robot sites that I've seen. It's very cool! Not only do I love to be able to look at all the robots, but there's a ton of great info on them, too. I love the way they've been organized into grids, with their names placed clearly underneath each one of them.
Thanks to and See : fragmented : - ramblings / fragments / snippets / etc.
