Episode 94 - Robots, and the End of Humanity​

advent.jpg
Robots have always fascinated and horrified humanity in equal measure. The prospect of a synthetic lifeform is at times exciting, but can quickly turn south. Luckily we've never gotten that far... or have we? This episode we will look at a selection of early robots, from the Mechanical Turk to Elektro. All have one thing in common: they run off smoke and mirrors. Selected Sources: Robots of Westinghouse by Scott Shaut - Best source on Elektro and his friends https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T35A3g_GvSg - See Elektro in action https://www.google.com/books/edition/Inanimate_Reason_Or_a_Circumstantial_Acc/mvVdAAAAcAAJ?hl=en&gbpv=1 - On the Mechanical Turk
