Androbot was a small american company way back in the early 80's, which build
and sold two types of robots: Topo and Bob. (They also made a third robot, but
that was more a small turtle.)
This is Topo. He was remote controlled by an Apple II computer. A couple of hundred
robots from this type where made and sold by Androbot.
This is Bob. He had the same exterior as Topo, but on the inside he was quite
different. Bob had an onboard computer system (Bob => Brains On Board) and
could operate independent.
This is the frame of Bob.
The wheel chassis
This is the wheel chassis of Topo and Bob. It's unique oblique wheel design
makes the robot statically stable. The batteries near the center of the wheels
increase the stability even more.
