Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Threat of the Robot
by David H. Keller

"THIS is the age of the “robot.” On every hand we meet a different mechanical wonder that directs some activity, which heretofore was accomplished by human labor. Some of these machines are veritable marvels of cunning and ingenuity.

Indeed, some of them perform the task better and quicker than human beings ever could. Whether it is a tide-predicting machine, whether it is a machine that controls traffic in our big cities, whether it is a billing machine, or an automatic block signal, or whether it is a robot which closes all windows of your house as soon as it starts to rain, makes little difference."


('The Threat of the Robot' by Dr. David H. Keller, M.D.)

"Robots are all around us and it will not take many years until such a machine, so vividly described by our own Dr. Keller, will come about. We will probably nod and wonder why the thing hadn’t been done a long time ago."
