Obama: Japanese robots a little scary

Yesterday, 06:50 PM

Following the demonstration, the President told an audience of some 30 students that "We saw some truly amazing robots - although I have to say the robots were a little scary. They were too lifelike. They were amazing. And these students showed me some of their experiments, including some soccer-playing robots that we just saw."

 

Too funny...

Unknown Space Water Pistol

I don't like to bring attention to auctions as they're in progress but this is the 2nd or 3rd time around for this grouping without any takers.  I'm wondering about the redish gun in the lower left corner; it looks like it has bold spacey decoration but I don't think I've ever seen it. Does anyone have information on this one, I didn't find it in the Space Gun database?

Park Plastics "Squirt Ray"

11 April 2014 - 09:42 PM

Today I received this Park Plastics "Squirt Ray" that I won at auction last week.  For $10 I couldn't pass it up; of course it didn't stay on the card very long.  I just wanted to take a moment to post pics of the packaging, there's no date on the card but I'm guessing it's from the 60's or 70's.

Marksman Space Target

09 April 2014 - 10:12 PM

This past weekend I was able to pick up this tin litho space target I've been looking for, the graphics are great and it's in relatively mint condition considering they were used as targets for projectiles.  It measures 15x12.5 inches and is marked "Selco Toys" in the orange dot at the bottom.  I have no idea what gun, if any, may have come with it.  Does anyone have any intel on this piece, the rocket ship graphics tell me its from the 50s?
