The Hyper Intelligence Technologies Mark IV, which took the form of 2.2-metre-tall black and silver robots, was first used in 1953.


The HIT Mark IV was a robot operated remotely by an Electronic Analog Controller via radio waves - therefore incapable of independent thought. The power source consisted of a chemical battery and an emergency photo-electric converter.

By 1993 they were in the process of being phased out in favour of the HIT Mark V. However, model #521-B remained unaccounted for.[1]
