Think robots are hard to make today? Try doing it 80+ years ago . . .

Wow, I didn't know the first photovore was created that long ago.. I knew it was many many years, but not 1912 :P

That schematic is actually pretty cool, I thought it was like what we have nowadays, but looking again I realized it has a steering wheel instead of a diff drive. Cool!
