Here comes Tik-Tok!

Recommended Posts

I always enjoy seeing pictures of Tik-Tok, the Seiko Robot. This was taken at 4:17 PM on August 20, 1964. That's more precise than the date on most photos!

It's a good thing you have the date, because there are no sun shadows on this one to determine it.  

Edit: I'm trying to recall if we have a picture or other knowledge of an operator/handler.

I found this April 1964 view.

It's really a distant zoom-in, but it looks like maybe the control unit hung around the operator's neck.

NBC's Edwin Newman tries to interview Tik Tok.
