At Telerobot (telerobot.mech.uwa.edu.au) on the web, users can move the robot. This demonstration of remote operation and programming of the industrial robot links users to the six-axis robot. Users receive still video images of the robot's workspace and can move its gripper in x, y, z, roll, pitch, and yaw. The user then gets a new picture. The site also offers a VRML model of the robot, simulations of the robot including movies made with AutoCAD 3D Studio, and a discussion area.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
