    George C. Devol, a largely self-taught inventor who drew from science fiction to help develop Unimate, the revolutionary mechanical arm that became a prototype for robots now widely used on automobile assembly lines and in other industries. In the 60s.

    Total respect.

  10. I am guessing that it’s a Rube Goldberg invention. A golf playing machine perhaps.
