    I vote for numerically controlled machine tools around 1960

    Robbie from 'forbidden planet' predates that by at least 4 years... ;)

    On a serious note (f#), I'd say the Jacquard loom.

    Probably the first example of a data-controlled machine is the Jaquard loom
    of approx 1850

    Bye.

    ~350 B.C
    The brilliant Greek mathematician, Archytas ('ahr 'ky tuhs') of Tarentum
    builds a mechanical bird dubbed "the Pigeon" that is propelled by steam.
    It serves as one of histories earliest studies of flight, not to mention
    probably the first model airplane.
