What is it?:

Cute ro­bot or maybe not

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TASSIE LIVING -

It looks like a cute ro­bot but maybe it’s not.

AT a glance this week’s mys­tery item looks like a small ro­bot. Can’t you just imag­ine it rolling across a moon sur­face then dig­ging holes to run sci­en­tific tests back in a rocket? No? Okay, fine.

It is ac­tu­ally re­lated to the build­ing in­dus­try but would have been used way be­fore any builders ar­rived at a con­struc­tion site.

Its name kind of sounds like morse code but it was not used for trans­mit­ting a mes­sage. This piece is from the 1960s. It was found at Ar­chive An­tiques in New Town.

If you know what this item is please shoot us an email at tassieliv­ing@news.com.au

Next week we will print the names of the fastest peo­ple to send in the cor­rect an­swer, plus we will re­veal our next mys­tery item — stay tuned.
