Harrisons Hartley's Robot

Assembled in England August 1912
Harrison Hartley’s idea sketches
Harrison produced hundreds of idea sketches in his search for his machine's form
All parts of the Roboton were formed meticulously by hand
Harrison’s breakthrough was the development of the voice activated command control center (voice to analog to Morse code to command the machine at distances up two one hundred feet, sight-to-sight navigation)
Slowly the Roboton began to take shape in Harrison’s small but orderly British workshop
