Good News Everybody!

Gotta love that robot porn (which for certain values of interestingly appears to be some sort of simple radio transmitter)...

The robot-porn is indeed a stylised & incomplete version of the primitive "FM radio bug" transmitters that were popular in the 1970s. Basically just a low-power oscillator with a varicap diode across the coil to provide FM. I recall making one of these back when I was about ten, using an OC170 transistor and a power-diode for the modulator because my pocket-money wouldn't run to buying a 'proper' varicap.
