Ichida – Answer Game Machine

This Robot does not walk, does not shoot with hidden guns, does not play a space movies so what does it basicly do then ? The answer lies in the Game, this robot can do calculations, it can add and subtract and that is pretty unbelievable because it all happens fully mechanical with gears, gears…. LOTS of gears inside this rare robot.

Build In Japan by Ichida in the mid 1960`s this robot takes 3 big batteries but does not use them to walk or shoot, he uses them to calculate.  There are 4 handles for Reset, add and subtract, Calculate and reset and 10 more buttons from 1 – 10. The eyes function to show if the PLUS or MINUS is in use by lighting up and the “brains ” in his head slowly rotate while the robot is in ” Thinking Mode ”

The original instructionsheet that says ( not included ):

1. Insert 3 flashlight type battaries
2. Addition: to add operator pushes lever to left ( plus sign )
Press the desired numbers on key board
3. Substraction: to substract push lever to right ( minus sign )
Press the desired numbers on key board
4. Total: To obtain automatic total pull down lever marked T
5. Clear: At the end of the game pull down lever Marked C To
clear the machine.
6. The machine is now ready for the next game.

Well thats about it 🙂 a wonderful robot that finally does something else than walking and shooting and the design is also really great. You can see they put a lot of effort in the design of this robot to make it attractive to children. Keep in mind that this was and still is a child toy and not a calculator. The outcome is not always accurate due to its complex mechanism ! 🙂

The condition of this Ichida Answering Game Machine is excellent+. The robot is complete and all original. The robot shows some light spidering and shows some light playwear. The battery compartment is clean and never housed a leaking battery for sure !. The robot is in working condition. The chrome parts could use some polishing but i will leave that to decide to the new owner.

Even better is that this robot comes with the original box + original inserts. The box is absolute in stunning excellent to near mint condition. NEVER i have seen a nicer box for this robot !! you will have a HELL of a job to ever upgrade this box.

Hard to find robot with original box.
