Seems like robots were a big deal in the 1980’s. I know they were for me. Had to have Verbot and then eventually a Robie Junior. While in elementary school, I even bought a book on robots during a school book sale. I dreamed of having my Coleco ADAM computer controlling a robot to do various chores around the house.
In this Toys ‘R Us commercial for Laser Tag, a human-sized robot tells us about Laser Tag, but I would rather have it sweeping my floors and making coffee =)
