The Omnibot 2000 Robot

   The Omnibot 2000 is a robot originally manufactured by the Tomy Company in the mid 1980s. It could carry objects with its specially made tray and was controlled via a wireless remote. It is 25 inches tall and powered by a 6-Volt lead-acid battery and two penlight style “AA” batteries. 

   Its right arm was controllable and the operator could move it’s shoulder, elbow, wrist and fingers. The Omnibot 2000 had an audio cassette player/recorder built into the chest area. It could record and playback sequences of commands, as well as regular audio recordings. The built in digital clock with timers and alarms allowed the playback of movement recordings at specified times. The Omnibot 2000 was  able to broadcast speech from the remote control through a speaker on the robot.
  The remote control for the robot enabled the operator to move the robot around the house, fetch a drink (with some human assistance) and even play music with it's built in audio cassette system.

  The original Omnibot was used as the cover photo for the 1980s book, "The World of Robots" and more recently the Omnibot 2000 was on the cover of "Toy Robots from Japan". The latest robotic version from Tomy is the I-Sobot.
