Beatnik Robot

From the Los Angeles Times on July 29, 1965:

“Author Lawrence Lipton, chronicler of the beatnik scene, demonstrates his “robot,” Duhab (detector of undesirable habitues). Lipton says robot ferrets out the undesirables-including censors and book-burners.”

…it looks like we can use a few of those robots today! By the way there’s a real Twilight Zone quality to that photo too.
