Answer:

  1. Richard Feynman
  2. Robert Heinlein’s Waldoes and Magic Inc

Feynmans “There’s plenty of room at the bottom” speaks of creating devices that are 1/4th our size, which further create devices 1/4th their size and so on till we hit the nano scale. The same concept was, earlier, put forth by Heinlein as what he called “Waldoes”

The name stuck and many remote manipulators, especially those used in the field of science, are called Waldoes :)
