Man & Machine
Since the begin of the Industrial Revolution in 1760 the human race has become addicted to produce, automate & optimize just about every conceivable aspect of our existence to make the chores of daily life less stressful & time consuming to make our private lives more enjoyable but at a price.
Ever since the days from Greek legend where Daedalus designed the wings of Icarus man has been obsessed with wanting to fly and many experiments & lives have been sacrificed for the freedom we take for granted today.
In 1799, the first steam-powered automobile capable of human transportation was built by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot. Then came Benz with the first petrol powered production model. Today, more than 200 years later the innovation lies in electric cars, fully automated production & self driving, self parking computer controlled vehicles.
Steam locomotives were first developed in the United Kingdom in the early 19th century. Built by George Stephenson & his son Robert’s company, the Locomotion No.1 is the first steam locomotive to carry passengers on a public rail line. Today it would be unthinkable to be without this very important method of transport.
