In another version Talos came to Crete with Zeus to watch over his love Europa, and Minos received him as a gift from her. There are suppositions that his name Talos in the old Cretan language meant the "Sun" and that Zeus was known in Crete by the similar name of Zeus Tallaios. Since Talos was a bronze man, his blood was lead, which they believed was a divine fluid (ichor), identical to that what runs in the veins of the gods. Talos' single vein was leading from his neck through his body to one of his heels, which was closed by a bronze nail or a bronze peg or a pin. [Robot Shop Distribution Inc., 2008]
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

In the past, robots were starting to come around in around the year 270 BCE. Based on the article, “Robots Long Ago”, by Karen Brinkmann, the article explains that “Every robot is a device that can carry out a complex series of actions automatically.” In other words, any object that functions actions automatically is basically a robot. On paragraph 2, it starts that “Around the year 270 BCE, a Greek scientist named Ctesibius dreamed of creating objects that would help people complete certain tasks.” he ended up, “inventing a clock that use mechanical technology to keep track of time.”
According to Greek legend, Zeus seduced a Phoenician Princess named Europa. He then took her to the island of Crete and they had a son named Minos. Minos went on to become the king of Crete. He also married Pasiphae who was the daughter of Helios. According to Bacchylides, a Greek playwright, Minos controlled all of the seas that surrounded Crete.
Creating an efficient team is not just having a group of people. It is what the person contributes creates an efficient team.When creating a team it requires a diversified set of skills and collaboration. In the article “La Vida Robot” by Joshua Davis and the excerpt Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson both authors believe that an efficient team needs knowledge about business, previous experience in their subject.
For a team to become triumphant, they must have effective and diverse members to incorporate different ideas and skills. In the article, “La Vida Robot” by Joshua Davis and the biography Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, the two both communicate the diversity teamwork as an advantage. The two share similar views on what makes a powerful team and convey that through each group they communicate to the reader. Both authors Isaacson and Davis agree that differences in teammates make a successful team.
Teamwork is important because in “La Vida Robot” by Joshua Davis teamwork was required because in order to make the robot they were going to need some help. In the same way Isaacson showed teamwork Steve and Wozniak had each other help instead of having a team.Davis and Isaacson share the same perspective as both believe that people must work together in order to build a strong team.
From sometime in between 205-150 BC, an ancient ship carrying the Antikythera Mechanism and a bounty of Hellenistic bronze and marble sculptures, pottery, and silver coins sunk of the eastern coast of Antikythera Island in the Aegean Sea, waiting to be discovered until A.D.1901 by a team of divers. After a century of research, the intricate bronze set of gears has been determined to be an ancient Greek computer that is able to calculate astronomical events. Understanding the importance of the Mechanism and its significance is imperative as it is unarguably the most sophisticated geared machine from the ancient world. Up to the present day, the Mechanism remains influential toward researchers, historians, astronomers and archaeologists.
Johannes Kepler: he first to fully explain the motion of the planets of our solar system, to fully explain the motion of the planets of our solar system, and he was the first to explain how the moon influenced tides he also influenced mathematics by forming some of the groundwork for integral calculus.
Searching up Archimedes I have found about a few interesting facts about his goals, Achievements, and discoveries. How some of his inventions are still used today and how he had a major impact on how we do things today.
The first mechanical clock was made in 723 A.D. by a monk and mathematician I-Hsing. It was an astronomical clock and he called it the "Water Driven Spherical Birds-Eye-View Map of The Heavens". In a few years after it was built the bronze and iron mechanism started to corrode, and in cold weather the water would freeze. In 976 A.D. Chang
The Antikythera Mechanism is a Hellenistic Period device possibly created by Archimedes in the Greek colony of Corinth. It was discovered by Jacques Cousteau when he was investigating a shipwreck found by sponge divers of the coast of the small Greek island of Antikythera. He found coins dating the wreck to the year 67 BC. Current radiometric dating methods have put the approximate date of manufacture to somewhere near 205 BC. Its original purpose was unknown until mid-1970 when it was discovered that the multiple gears of the mechanism fit together to form a “computer” of sorts. It was found that it could accurately predict all planetary, lunar, and solar anomalies regarding those heavenly bodies known to the Greek society at that time. It
How would today’s world be if the technology that is known and loved by millions suddenly vanished? Could the world re-adapt to the lack of technology, or would it plummet into Darkness and Despair? In actuality, if someone can develop artificial intelligences to a certain limit he or she can prevent many of the world’s future problems. In a sense, Mankind can benefit greatly from the further use and development of Artificial Intelligence although some people would have one believe that the further development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can endanger large areas around the world.
A hydraulic robotic arm, operating using water must be designed, built, and be tested in approximately two and a half weeks. The entire project consists of detailed design sketches with project notes, numbered parts made on a CAD program, bill of materials and a working prototype.
