Ben Marks’ informative article entitled “Someday, Robots May Save or Destroy Us All -- For Now, They're Still Kinda Dumb” is the inspiration for this post. Shown here is the first model (1983) Tokima DigiRobo watch with its original band and bright yellow display case. (The instruction manual is not shown in this pic.)
Seven colors were made in 1983 and supposedly this gold tone version was only offered in Japan. Anyhow, it only tells time and the robot itself just stands there -- so, it is “kinda dumb”.
UPDATE ... It's happening! Will we not survive? The Tokima DigiRobot found my GoBot watch and it doesn't look good. Kerry was right ... the little guy might be dangerous.
