    Oh, how far we have come since then.. from Electro, to drones. From Electro, to sneakers that flash lights when we walk.

    Astounding progress for humanity.

    In the 50′s Kurt Vonnegut wrote a short story about a man who developed a refrigerator that appeared to have human characteristics, which he then used to sell appliances. Might have been inspired by Elektro for all I know. It’s worth reading: “Jenny”, in the collection “While Mortals Sleep”..

    We’ve gone from Elektro to ASIMO.
    When it comes to robotics, yes, that is progress.
