Special Book Pimpage on behalf of a friend:

Here's a book, co-written by this amazingly cool woman I happen to know, that some of you might be interested in: Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel

Boilerplate was a mechanical man developed by Professor Archibald Campion during the 1880s and unveiled at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition.

Built in a small Chicago laboratory, Boilerplate was originally designed as a prototype soldier for use in resolving the conflicts of nations. Although it was the only such prototype, Boilerplate was eventually able to exercise its proposed function by participating in several combat actions.


This whole thing looks very cool and steam-punky and like part of the history of Robotics that a lot of people might not know about. I sure never heard of it, but I definitely want to read the book.
