It's a robot!
Just the thing to sit beside your keyboard as you tinker away in your mad scientist workshop! You may not have a degree in computer science, electrical engineering, or robotics — but at least you have a mousepad with the image of the greatest of all science fiction robots! And once you have that, how difficult it it, really, to write the software for a time machine or atomic transporter?
This watch features the image of Robby — one of 55 portraits created for John Purlia's recent solo exhibition, "Tales from the Vinyl Dimension".
