60 AD, Year of the Robot

The never-ending debate over who built the first robot
continues. Many believe that the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci
are the first well-documented designs of what most would call
a robot, but now Noel
Sharkey, a computer scientist at the University of Sheffield in the
UK, believes robots go back to Hero of
Hero was a Greek mathematician and engineer who built
many contraptions including vending machines, organs, and yes,

3-wheeled cart driven by gravity used to automatically deliver
props on a stage.
