The Model 80 was developed by QreXion Inc. Utilizing revolutionary actuator systems, staggered limb jointings, and slim-line power systems, the robot was able to lift and carry extreme loads over long distances.
Unfortunately QreXion was as deficient in accounting aptitude as it was rich in engineering skill and the company fell into financial troubles before it could turn the Model 80 into a production robot.
QreXion was later acquired by Stobor robotS. Stobor retained the prototype Model 80 name (the quirky company preferred robots with whimsical names). Nicknamed “Heavy Lifting Hal”, the robot was sold to the industrial facilities around the globe. Firmware upgrades later made the robot autonomous, eliminating the need for human supervisors.
Fun Fact: A tremendous success, “Hal” is credited with the obsolescence of the forklift.
This bot stands a bit under 7 inches at the antenna. This one-eyed robot is held together with magnets which allows the robot to be posed, reposed, disassembled, and reassembled in any way that the laws of magnetic attraction allow. Every bot is unique so the grain pattern and color may vary from the photos.
This robot is held together with strong neodymium magnets. If you have a pacemaker, please consult your doctor before purchasing. This product is not intended for children – magnets can be broken and while the wood parts are sturdy can likewise be broken or damaged.
WARNING: If product is abused, it can be broken presenting a choking hazard. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Hal comes packaged in his own box complete with short bio, use and care guide, and 10 year warranty.
