What is it?:
Cute robot or maybe not
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.
