Shorts Program: Express Yourself
Built by Westinghouse, Elektro was the sensation of the New York World’s Fair of 1939. Employing cutting edge technology, the robot could walk, talk and respond to questions. Oh, and he also smoked! But his fame was short lived, and after a stint on the sideshow circuit and in semi-porn, Elektro just disappeared. My Brain Is Bigger looks at what happened to America’s first celebrity robot.
