    Plaid Stallions Armatron



    Armatron was the last toy I ever got for Christmas and man, was I excited. I spent months thinking about how cool it would be to own a robot arm.

    I remember getting it and it did everything it said but I guess I had built it up so much in my mind it could never live up to my mental model. I did get pretty good at it though.

    My daughter would still love this. She goes nuts for those Tinker Crate engineering sets.

    I never had one but always thought it looked fun. There are sets out now that reminded me of Armatron, but they are made to be programmed for operations rather than manually operated.

    I didn't have one, but I think one of my friends had one. I would've gotten bored with it after a day or so.
    I am more than machine. More than man. More than a fusion of the two.
