Robots galore, 1961

Sheet metal man Robert Calloway stands in the center of 16 mechanical robots in Peoria, Ill., which he made for a promotion firm in 1961. The robots stand 6 feet tall and weigh fifty pounds. They have a built-in tape recorder and move their heads and arms when delivering a message. The cost of the sheet metal robot is around two hundred dollars.
