Robot, 1928 - A Mechanical Man who may do work of tomorrow

Mr. R. J. Wensley of the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company operating a mechanical man or robot who, in response to spoken signals and notes blown on a pitch pipe, unveiled a portrait of George Washington. The Graphic comments the machine, suggests that one day the work of the world may be carried on by automatons who will never think of striking and goes on to cast doubt on their usefulness in the light of recent mechanised industrialisation leading to unemployment in America. The robot was named Herbert Televox, the first of several robots based on patents taken out by Wensley and created at Westinghouse.
