I hope he qualifies as 'Hi Tech'.
The original Robby the Robot had me at "Forbidden Planet". I grew attached to him watching reruns of "Lost in Space". Enjoyed his turns in the Twilight Zone's "Uncle Simon" and "The Brain Centre at Whipple's" and only recently made the connection during a Columbo marathon to his guest starring role in "Mind over Mayhem".
Robert 'Robby' the Robot's creator, Robert Kinoshita, died earlier this year at 100 years old.
Nice to see "Robert the Robot" on the home page of The Unreality Lab. I know he's not THE Robert, but I confess I've spoken to him. And naturally he's responded, so I guess you can say we've chatted. AI is the future. Whether we'll be ready or not.
