'Robot' is for sale at a paltry $24,500

Ever since we were reminded of Uncle Fester's lightbulb last week, we've been reminiscing about old TV shows . And then, by the miracle of coincidence, today we see the ultimate example of Hollywood's version of technology from the '60s: "Robot" from Lost in Space. (That would be the original TV series, not that pathetic movie with Matt LeBlanc.)

Thanks to Technabob, we learned that "Robot B9"--we never knew his full name--has been resurrected in the form of a full-size replica for sale to the public at a mere $24,500. But before you choke your Tang, be aware that this is no cheapo repro: "Each robot is crafted from steel, acrylic, aluminum rubber and other materials and doesn't skimp on construction in any way. B9 has a number of animated movements and a digital audio system loaded with over 500 tracks from the original actor who voiced the original robot on TV," Techabob says.

The best part of all? It has a remote. Which means that, if we can ever save up enough for one, our neighborhood will never be the same.
