I am nutty about robots. As a kid, I always wanted one, and as an adult, I have kept a close eye on the robot world looking for a bot that will finally be the electronic best friend I have dreamed about. Over the years, some robots have caused more of an infatuation than others. In the mid-eighties, one of those robots was RB5X by the RB Robot Corporation. I would like to say I wanted him because I thought his capabilities were impressive, and they were for the time period.
