A few weeks ago, RoboDynamics announced there would be a robot in every household by 2021. However, they are not the first ones to offer us robot
slaves personal assistants.
Meet Newton, he’s a personal and “practical” robot that was produced by a SynPet in the 80s and 90s.
He has some impressive specs, such as a whopping 20 MB Hard Drive and a 720 K Floppy Disk Drive.
Below is the truly awesome marketing video made in 1989. I can’t decide if I like the part when Newton gets a floppy disk ‘treat’ or when the old lady gets quite friendly the best.
If you can make it through the first six minutes and twenty-four seconds you’ll hear the real treat.
Meet Newton! He’s a helping hand through technology!
