The History of Automata -return to top-
The beginnings of robotics started with clock and music box makers incorporation of their craft in toy dolls of mind-blowing intricacy between the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries.  The Jaquet-Droz Writer,  for example, would actually write.  The Vaucanson's Duck would preen it's feathers and simulate eating.  For more fascinating details, please check the links below.

Kwik Trig II, Solutions for Right Triangles by John Fracaro  This program does all the trigonometry for you!  Forget cosines and tangents.  Just input your numbers.  It even does bolt circles.  I use this at work all the time.  John has sent me a letter informing me of his updated version.  Click the link above and get your free copy.  Thank you John.
Convert 4.10 by Joshua F. Madison  This is an extremely handy utility that would be useful for engineers, students, or anyone that wishes to convert measurements of distance, weight, electricity, light, power, speed, you get the idea.  It does everything!  This extremely easy to use as well as elegant.  I think you should download it to see for yourself.  You can always delete it!
RJ's Calculator 1.5a  Need a calculator?  This is a scientific calculator for your computer.  Sometimes a real calculator can be misplaced or lost between the couch cushons, just when you needed it the most.  No need to worry now!  See Picture  There is also RJ's Hexedit as well for all of you hexidecimal programmers.
