Vintage Japanese robot from the 30s

Check out this retro photo of a super cool robo:

This is photo taken in the early 1930s of Mitsui Yasutaro and his “own steel humanoid”. Very impressive. The robot is the one on the left by the way.

…the fascination goes back this far? Oh yeah, much much further. I have some questions though. What was this robo guy’s name? How did he work? What could he do? What do all those dials and knobs do? Are those vacuum tubes? Sweet.
