rebooted!

Nell’ormai lontano 1987, la ZINGARACCI Editrice rendeva pubblico la prima di una serie di piccole raccolte che col tempo arrivarono a dodici numeri; si trattava di “Quotidiane Idiozie”, una serie di frasi, ritagli e sentiti urbani collezionati con cura e con il puro scopo di far ridere, pensare o semplicemente curiosare un po’ nel quotidiano che ci circondava. A quasi trentanni dalla sua nascita condividiamo volentieri quest’esperienza col popolo della Rete, pur sapendo che, nel frattempo, vi furono imprese simili che ebbero più fortuna. Certi che ognuno è un potenziale cantastorie, siamo felici di ospitare tutte le new entries che vorrete proporci, con l’impegno di aggiornare periodicamente il sito. Buona lettura!

7 Humanoid Toy Robots from the Original Space Age

Last week, we learned the rules for the final round of DARPA’s Robotics Challenge. It was immediately apparent that we’re teetering on the precipice of a futuristic future, where robots can walk around on two legs doing work without human aid. The reality is not unlike the Space Age fantasies from 50 years ago.

The designs themselves are more similar than you might imagine, too. A recent auction of vintage toys provided a fun look into what designers of yesteryear thought humanoid robots would look like in the future. The trends are pretty apparent.

These robots adhered to very traditional boxy look with two arms and two legs.

Their torso often served as a display of sorts with loads of dials and gauges, presumably to show off now archaic metrics like oil pressure or fuel intake.

Many of the robots have approachable human names like Mr. Mercury or Mr. Patrol.

Mr. Robot was apparently a very popular name.

No, seriously, it was super popular.

Some even have human faces painted on them.

We now know that real robots don’t need so many pleasantries, but the humanoid approach did stick. For the most part, the competitors from the last stage of the robotics challenge adhered to the simple four-limbed approach, though some got a little bit creative with how the machines moved around.
