Westinghouse designed numerous additional robots during the decades that followed, with the most famous being the seven-foot Elektro the Moto-Man, who premiered at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City. In 2006, Scott Schaut, director and curator of the Mansfield Memorial Museum in Ohio, published Robots of Westinghouse: 1924 – Today, detailing the birth of Televox, the development of Elektro and the numerous robots that came in between. Although Westinghouse is based out of Pittsburgh, it was its facility in Mansfield that produced Elektro, and Schaut is arguably the premier expert when it comes to robots and Westinghouse.

Robot’s Best Friend: Westinghouse introduced Sparko the dog as a companion for Elektro. Schaut knows of six sketches of women robots, created by Westinghouse’s robot team. They have some of Elektro’s features, such as the circular light in the chest, but they differ in hairstyle, facial expression, and bust and hip measurements. Plus, all of the lady robots are wearing dresses. Photo: Bettmann/Getty Images. Robot’s Best Friend: Westinghouse introduced Sparko the dog as a companion for Elektro.
Despite Westinghouse apparently doing a full press on public relations, there isn’t much information about these on the Internet. The book Robots of Westinghouse: 1924 – Today by Scott Schaut goes into great detail about Willie Vocalite, Televox, and Elektro. However, the cyberzoo site has a lot of magazine article scans and pictures, including an article from Popular Science Monthly from 1928. It seems to be out of print, but you might find it at a library somewhere.
