Birth Of The Robots: Y-Prize 2013

Created from a vast trove of thousands and thousands of newly discovered pieces of footage from the early days of robotics, going back to the early 1980s. The public has never seen most of this footage. Collected from the archives of three preeminent engineers, the footage tells the story of the creation of quadrotors, RHex, CKBots and more.
