In 1964, Sabor conformed to the astronaut look and temporarily adopted the name Orbitus.

1976 was the last great performances with SABOR opening an old people's home, a place he could not make a reservation himself. For years SABOR stood in Steuer's garage. It wasn't  until after his death in 1990, SABOR found his way to the EBM Museum in Switzerland.  SABOR V then had a major outing at the Museum of Communications in Berlin at the remarkable exhibition "Die Roboter Kommen!" ("The robots come!") in 2007.
