Omnibot, your high-tech humble servant


After looking at everything the Omnibot and Omnibot 2000 could do back in the 80s, I’m very confused as to why we haven’t developed the ultimate programmable servant robot yet? I mean, all it really has to do is fetch drinks and play some tunes.
Here are some of the features:
“The Omnibot had a cassette tape player built into the chest area of the robot, which slid out like a drawer to reveal the cassette and could record and playback sequences of commands, as well as regular audio recordings. The built in digital clock with timers and alarms allowed the playback of movement recordings at specified times. It was able to broadcast speech from the remote control handset through a speaker on the robot, and was shipped with a cardboard “home” base which was suggested to be taped to the floor and used as a reference point for programming. The Omnibot carried a specially made tray which slotted into its claws, and could carry objects.”

Sounds ideal, right? Swap out the tape with an mp3 and a hard drive, make the flashlight eyes into a video projector, and maybe put an extendable spine in it so it can achieve different hegihts.

The video after the jump is even more convincing.

Cenotés of the Yucatán


Cenotés are deep, fresh water-filled sinkholes that the Mayans thought of as entrances to the underworld. Simply gorgeous to explore.
