Kentucky,

Would take alittle bit of work to get a machine putting together guns, alot more complex machinery and machinery that can deal with small tiny parts compared to pushing and pulling blocks of lego around.

Plus I think they already assemble guns with robotics to a limited degree. Smile

Since it relates to my current microcontroller project (shhh its a big secret ... not really its a scientific calculator) And I think this is alot more impressive due to the way the mind has to work to develope something like this ...

Before the day of computers and pocket calculators all mathematics was done by hand. Great effort was expended to compose trigonometric and logarithmic tables for navigation, scientific investigation, and engineering purposes. The larger efforts involved rooms of semi skilled people, called 'computers', capable of doing reliable arithmetic who would be under the direction of a skilled mathematician.

In the mid-19th century, people began to design machines to automate this error prone process. Many machines of various designs were eventually built but, the most advanced and famous of these was not. The Babbage Difference Engine.

Because of engineering issues as well as political and personal conflict the Babbage Difference engines construction had to wait until 1991 when the Science Museum in London decided to build the Babbage Difference Engine No.2 for an exhibit on the history of computers.

Babbage's design could evaluate 7th order polynomials to 31 digits of accuracy. I set out to build a working Difference Engine using standard LEGO parts which could compute 2nd or 3rd order polynomials to 3 or 4 digits. I have built two generations of Difference Engines and am designing the third version now.
