"When you make a thing, a thing that is new, it is so complicated making it that it is bound to be ugly. But those that make it after you, they don’t have to worry about making it. And they can make it pretty, and so everybody can like it when others make it after you."

    I don't have enough hair for a man bun, but I do have a home that would welcome a personal robot! Thanks erco - I made my pitch!

    Agreed - we will saw this in half in the middle of the headband - Brainstorm - we can attach it to some glasses to anchor the front so the bun can hang in the back. That way it can double as a different sort of opti grab!

    By the way - the new Servo is in! The new Servo is in! You are somebody.
    Great bot collecting article!

  • Thanks, editor Robin was particularly generous with space & pages for many colorful photos. I had not known the virtues of the Radicon robot (coherer tube & all) before researching for that article, but now it tops my wish list. Christmas is coming and miracles happen!

    I think you'll also like the December "Roboto". It's my favorite column, also probably the longest (word count) to end the year with a bang. Spoiler: dead reckoning.

    I have a lot of hair, but the only way I will ever have a man-bun is if I fall head-first into a box of pastries!

  • Just what we need, another voice controlled assistant that does not respond to the already established universal keyword - "computer".

    "Hey Teemi", "Hey Siri", "Hey Google" and "Alexa", at least Amazon's version does not require the "Hey" part.

    Star Trek has a long list of predicted technology that has found it way into common usage. Wheeled robots are not one of them. This thing is a novelty and because of it's many limitations can not become a common household item. A voice controlled home on the other hand can become a common thing, if only you could communicate with it using a sensible wake word. We all know what that word is, why are these companies ignoring it?

    Because none of them can own it, but maybe Paramount pictures could claim that they do....
  • So is the man bun really a "thing" outside of LA? My locale has scarcely gotten past the mini-ponytail sported by Hollywood types around Film Fest time -- usually accompanied by highly trendy, expensive sunglasses, even though the sun had long ditched the Northwest by then. I guess I'll have to keep an eye out at the local food co-op, where such fashion statements have a tendency to manifest themselves first around here.

    Not for me, though. I don't wear or sport anything that isn't strictly functional.

  • Up here in Ventura it's more conservative, I guess, although there are some surfers with longer hair, and certainly might see a man bun or two if you drive up to Ojai. ;)
  • Barbie's latest Ken has a man bun and keeps us ex-Mattelites ROFL:
    RE: Ken... Perhaps the man bun is compensation from something that's missing. That would explain a lot of young men in LA, too!

  • Hmm.... As a kid my Action Man did not have a man bun. Despite having some parts missing.

    He sported a mean looking scar on his cheek like real men do.
