In the last Tech Thursday post, I wrote about our engineering manual collection. For some reason, there are some items in the same collection that have nothing to do with manuals, but record the creation of Ricobot I in 1988. My guess is that all of these items came in at once and were grouped together instead of split up.
It looks like Ricobot is going out for a stroll, but might still be a bit unfinished at this stage.
Here is Ricobot in the lab picking up objects and a screenshot of a program called AutoPath.
Finally, here’s a paper outlining how much Ricobot cost.
If you know more about this robot, the project, or the two men in the picture, please let us know.
