77-100BC: In 1901, between the islands of Crete and Kythera, a diver found the remnants of what might only be considered a mechanical computer. The device is a complex mix of gears which most likely calculated the position of the sun, moon or other celestial bodies. The device dates back 2000 years and is considered to be of Greek origin and was given the name “The Antikythera Device”. [Robot Shop Distribution Inc., 2008]
270BC: An ancient Greek engineer named Ctesibus made organs and water clocks with movable figures. The concept for his clock was fairly simple; a reservoir with a precise hole in the bottom would take 24 hours to empty its contents. [Robot Shop Distribution Inc., 2008]
278 – 212BC: Archimedes (287-212BC) did not invent robots, but he did invent many mechanical systems that are used in robotics today, as well as advancing the field
