Robots at World's Fairs - Part 3
This robot certainly was nowhere as cute and friendly as Tik Tok! It looks more like it was some sort of war machine from a science fiction film. It's actually the "Mascot I" robot from the Italy Pavilion at Expo 67. I'm not sure what it was doing, but it appears to be manipulating something firmly clamped in a large vise. The kid looking up it sure looks impressed. Or scared!
