Robot Sculpture, OptimaVueBot from the Originals Series
ONE-OF-A-KIND ART SCULPTURE
Robot Name : OptimaVueBot
Robot Series : Originals
The psychedelic era of the 1960's and 70's brought about changes in the social, artistic and musical genres, bringing with it more awareness of political authority, crushing the boundaries of normalcy and allowing oneself to feel a little more empathy toward others. All of this change came about however with a little help from the potent psychedelic drugs of the day. I'm sure there were many sightings of little blue alien faced robots just like the one seen here.
All custom art pieces are sculpted using items found at flea markets and antique shops and are not meant to be toys. As such, you will find patina, scratches, and/or dents in the various materials. All of these imperfections add to the beauty and character of the final sculpture.

Early adoption of videophone technology was given a boost by our colorful robot friend OptimaVueBot. Always ready to give you a smile and a wave, he spent many a day working in the lab with hundreds of other scientists. So many smart people were trying to perfect the almost impossible task back then of sending video imagery down the phone line to another user across the globe, one picture frame at a time. The ultimate goal was face to face communication as if the person you were talking with was in the next room. Fast forward to today and real time 4K video is the norm!!
