If you read my bio in the book then you already know I am building a full-size replica of the B9 robot from the TV series Lost in Space. Why? Because it’s a lost easier than building a full-size Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet. Still you ask, “Why?” I also collect/restore vintage vector arcade games (Asteroids, Battlezone, Star Wars, etc) and pinball machines (Dr. Who, Twilight Zone, Star Trek Next Generation) and having a robot greet visitors to “Mike’s Arcade” seemed a nice touch.

Plus, I don’t have to work hard to convince people I have “nerd cred” anymore. If you want to learn more, I recommend a trip over to the B9 Robot Builder’s Club.
