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.

The White Wolf Saloon

One of the best bars in Wyoming, if not America. I spent the other afternoon in The White Wolf watching Madhouse, drinking Budweiser, and eating pretzels. It was ideal, and the taxidermy kept me comfortable. Also to be noted is that Elvis, the alligator from Miami Vice is stuffed in here as well.

Loss of the Pilot Boat Jacob A. Westervelt (No. 19)

This is an essay written by my Grandfather, Norman Tengstrom, about the sinking of the Pilot Boat Jacob A. Westervelt (No. 19) and death of my great great great grandfather Captain John O’Keefe off the New York Harbor. I also included a gallery of the Captain’s log at the end (amazing script).

“The New York Pilot boat Jacob A. Westervelt was run down and sunk by the New Hamburg screw-steamer Saxonia on Tuesday morning, April 20, 1858, her Captain, John O’Keefe, drowned.  Captain O’Keefe was one of the most intrepid and capable of our pilots, and was a brother of Maurice O’Keefe, deputy U.S. Marshal.”

Moraine Lake

Situated in the Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park, Moraine Lake is definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth. Due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposits, the glacier-fed lake glows the most beautiful blue.  The hotel which sits on it, Moraine Lake Lodge, isn’t too shabby either.
