Post Flexible Frank Serves Breakfast
Flexible Frank Serves Breakfast, or Not the Droid You're Looking For

I guess it is possible now to buy Heinlein's robot Flexible Frank, star of The Door into Summer.

Simone Giertz writes entertainingly about her efforts to program a robot arm to serve her breakfast.

Be sure to watch the short video clips.

Paul Reubens had an earlier Breakfast Machine. With bonus music by Danny Elfman.
