Spectrum for 31 October 2010

From Spectrum, 12:10 pm on 31 October 2010


Take a pile of discarded rusting metal, add one excitable Welshman with a dash of pure vision, plus a few hours of drilling, screwing, grinding and cutting, and what have you got?

A Retrobot, that's what.

Confused? Well, the fact is that Martin Horspool makes robots from just about anything. His workshop looks like a junkyard but then Martin's Retrobots aren't exactly sleek and futuristic....funny bits of metal sprouting arms and legs would be more accurate.

For Spectrum, Justin Gregory goes back to the future with The Robot Guy.
