Tinker the remote-controlled robot was the work of inventor David Weston from Yorkshire. His metal friend could wash the car, take the baby for a stroll down the road, go on a shopping expedition and weed the garden. However, all of of these tasks had to be done within 200 metres of David’s garage, where he controlled Tinker through a control panel.

Due to lack of space at David’s home the robot was eventually passed on to a family friend in 1974. Sadly the inventor passed away at the age of 71 in 1995.
