Robby and B9 Creator Robert Kinoshita

Posted 14 May 2004 at 20:03 UTC by steve Share This

Robert Kinoshita, the designer of Robby the Robot from Forbidden Planet and Robot B9 from Lost in Space, two of the most well-known screen robots of all time, will be speaking at the Hollywood Heritage Museum in Hollywood, California on Wednesday, May 19 at 7:30 PM. Along with Kinoshita, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday, will be the original Robby the Robot (accompanied by director Bill Malone, his current owner) and a replica of the original B9. This could be a once-in-lifetime chance to see a man and two robots who inspired a lot of people to enter the field of robotics.

When I was in Big Bear, California I actually saw the Lost In Space rover (transport vehicle) while going over a valley in a ski lift. Sadly, it looked like some kids had already decided to throw rocks at it, broken windows and such, but there it was.

I'd heard someone bought the Chariot back from the ski lift company in order to restore it and I tracked down this link with the story:
