    I wish I had

    @welder541 I still have mine…Your right you had to blow into the mic. Notice its a clear top. ONly for the commercial had that the rest were red tops.

  5. @bukster1 The …
    @bukster1 The remote to this toy had a control knob you slid up and down the remote itself to give it commands. The vibration created from your breath into what looked like a tinfoil backed mouthpiece on top would put it into action and complete your command. And this was ’63’or’64’ not 1959. Thanks for the great memories. I had one

  6. I just did some …
    I just did some research on this toy, and the “voice activation” is really done with a contact switch that is sensitive to vibrations, which composes the “microphone”. Any loud enough sound would activate the robot. The actual functions are “chosen” by the knob on the controller, so there is no real voice activation other than off/on. Still an interesting idea, but I would probably have ended up shorting out the “mic” (replace it with a button) so I could use the robot and keep my voice. 🙂

  7. probably …
    probably recognized simple tones that just happened to be in the words you spoke. Still, I have to wonder how many transistors they had to pack into that thing for the logic gates and such and how expensive it was. Remember, this was 1959, and most electronics were still using tubes.

  8. Remember kids, when …
    Remember kids, when you see a 6-story tall robot knocking down buildings, stomping tanks, flinging missiles, and shooting down aircraft, “He’s here to HELP you!”
