According to a piece on BotJunkie (translating a piece on Japan’s Robot Watch), a small army of vacuum tube robots from the 50s and 60s, built by Aizawa Zirou, have been unearthed in a warehouse, many of them apparently brand new. I love the Google translation:

“Were sleeping in a warehouse until it’s released by the packaging. We look at the state and restore the dynamics at the time.”

Got it.
