AUTOMATON

 

by H. Stafford Hatfield

 

 First published in England in 1928 in the ‘To-Day and To-Morrow’ series, this brief treatise on automation gives us a glimpse into contemporary concepts of robotics and the possible applications of the then-current technology to modern civilization. In retrospect, the proposals put forth may seem quaint; but, given the post-WWI climate in which it was written, the ideas offered, and the dreams of a world improved by robotic servants, convey a sense of positive hope in the light of growing technological advance during the 1920’s.
