THODAR the ROBOT

Invented by your host in 1954 during his senior year of High School

Said to be the First Wireless - Remote Controlled Robot

Thodar now lives in retirement inside the 1835 Grist Mill

He is still operational (but a bit slower) We keep his 6 Volt car battery charged.

Still weighs 282 Pounds ( He has never put on weight.)

Spent most of his life in classrooms as a teaching aid!
