It was found in an antique shop, has some transistors, which places it in the 50's or 60's, seems to be made mostly from telecom relays and wiring, but the motors and the use of light-sensing devices in the tail indicate that perhaps it did have some real functionality, but other than that, not much is known about it. The multitude of switches make some think it was 'programmable'.
However, when I see something like this, I think we do have time travellers. It's certainly the most steampunk robot dog I've ever seen.
Real or Art Piece? You decide...
