Antique Robots

My aunt recently bestowed on me the gift of Antique Robots, which are not really robots but actually simple wind-up toys. They make a great addition to my bookshelf display, and I am going to display them here too.

The first is Robot Lilliput, a replica of a 1940's tin wind-up robot.


Note the ominous warning:


I also have a demonstration of this robot's capabilities:

And now for the second robot, Space Trooper:



And the accompanying demonstration video:

Unfortunately this robot is quite a bit slower than Robot Lilliput.
