Johnny Five


This is another rusty shot which reminded me of some type of Robot, specifically Johnny Five! 

As you may recall number 5  is one of the prototype robots proposed for Cold War use by the U.S. military, although the scientist mainly responsible for creating them, Newton Graham Crosby, Ph.D. and his partner Ben Jabituya, are more interested in peaceful uses of their artificial intelligence, like playing musical instruments. While a demonstration takes place on the grounds of the developer’s company, Nova Laboratories in Damon, Washington, a lightning storm forces an end to the presentation. A power surge hits Number 5 while it is recharging and alters its program, causing a malfunction. An associated accident causes it to be taken off company grounds and it wanders away, unable to communicate and not knowing where it is.

Apparently the early prototype ended at The Bernardo Winery in San Diego! http://www.kerstenbeck.com
