Go up one level in this thread


Wasn't some robot model from start of the 80s a few years again produced and
>intended to get sold in a certain supermarket in Spain?

the only Robot to use an arm for movement was the Novag Robot Adversay
released in 1982 and containing Dave Kittingers "MYCHESS" program
about 2000 were sold


i have two of them
one in perfect condition
the other defective
most Novag Robots are now defective
