'Cosmos the Robot' created by Christian Dupont, 1958 (French) ~ Operated by remote control, Cosmos was a big hit. Dupont exhibited the robot at fairs and circuses in the 1950s and won an award at the Intl Exhibition of Invention Of Monaco in 1960. Cosmos was described as elegant and sophisticated. It drove forward, backward, turning right or left by a single swivel wheel under the saucer. The head had slight realistic movement, and its speech was perfectly synchronized with the mouth.
