|Creator||Westinghouse Electric Corporation|
Elektro is a humanoid robot created by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation. He was just over seven feet tall, and weighed around 265 lbs. He was able to walk, move his arms and head, and be controlled vocally. He was displayed at the 1939 New York World's Fair, and reappeared once again the following year, as well. He was available to speak around seven-hundred different words using a record player. Elektro's eyes were photosensors and could distinguish between red and green light.
In 1995 the Westinghouse Electric Corporation purchased CBS and became the CBS Corporation in 1997.
