Radio Shack Armatron


A very cool 80's toy cropped up recently. Not necessarily computer related, but definitely in the "retro tech" wheelhouse. The toy itself was manufactured by Tomy for Radio Shack, and uses an array of reduction gears to operate the mechanical arm. I've got one myself, and they're mighty cool!

Listing is HERE.

I've got an armatron, but don't have the extras that came with it! My dad had one when he was a kid and let me play with it when I was a kid. Very nostalgic!
