"Roll-Oh” the Domestic Robot - 1940
"Roll-Oh" can grasp objects, has a retractable knife in its hand, as well as a plant watering system, a can opener, and a gas-flame lighter. Its foot is also a vacuum-cleaner. Tongue-in-cheek film showing a domestic robot freeing housewives of their chores and intimating that their work is hardly necessary; actually a promo showing how relays and switches function in the modern automobile.
Shown at the New York World's Fair in 1940. This movie is part of the collection: Prelinger Archives - - - Producer: Jam Handy Organization - - - Sponsor: Chevrolet Division, General Motors Corporation
