    I’ll instead answer what I surmise must have been Sid Sen’s original question. Claude Shannon’s electromechanical mouse is called Theseus after the mythological hero who cracks a maze.

    Claude Shannon – dead giveaway with the maze!


  19. Neeraj

    Claude E Shannon and the title refers to his work with switching circuits using relays and their analysis using boolean algebra.


  20. Hercules

    Claude Shannon with his electromechanical mouse.


  21. claude shannon..


  22. @udupendra: No, he wanted to know about the unit.
