Step inside the robot repair shop of the retrofuture

Looking for an oil change? Need a snazzy new pair of hydraulic legs or a fresh coat of asbestos? Take a spin through Fraley's Robot Repair Shop, the one-stop shop for all your retro robot's needs.

Artist Toby Atticus Fraley has long had a soft spot for found object robots, cobbling together lively robot sculptures from vintage objects. Now you can visit his art installation, Fraley's Robot Repair Shop, in Pittsburgh. Located at the former entrance of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, the Robot Repair shop employs a 1950s aesthetic and a playfully grim sense of humor (Won't someone please let that little robot out?). The installation will be up until next November, and will change throughout the year.
