Happy Halloween from Whit and Robotics Under the Stole

Most of you know that I grew up in the heyday of Sci-Fi and Horror Films and the very beginning of the space program. So, I've always loved space exploration, robotics, and monster movies!

Not long ago, I posted a photo of me on my blog, Robotics Under the Stole, from Christmas of 1967 (9 years old) with the Zeroid - Zerak robot. The photo came in the form of the screen capture from an 8mm home movie from that year! That post is here.

A few years later in 1971, my sister, her best friend, and I made this silent short film on the same 8mm camera.



Happy Halloween from Robotics Under the Stole!

  • That is totally brilliant!

    Seems they stole your last scene "punch line" for a famous Indian Jones scene.

    "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."
