thanks a lot,  that all looks very good, though some of us might have to Google a couple of the heroes - Shannon to me is  a lovely river in Ireland where Irish Whiskey was invented, by the chef at the Foynes flying boat terminal - a hero indeed  - how does that suit you  Grumpy Mike ?    smiley

He was pretty awesome, a normal sized magnetic mouse robot that solved and navigated mazes smiley..

I suspect that the relay control logic was not inside the mouse..

this reminds me ... maybe Douglas Engelbart, the father of the "Demo of the Demos" should be in this list, or maybe Mark Weiser .... buff, so many relevant people ... I just get lost.
