1972 – “CYCLOPS” – L. C. Galitz (British)

"CYCLOPS" (CYbernetically  Controlled Light Oriented and Powered System) , built by L. C. Galitz as a construction project for The Radio Constructor [later renamed to Radio & Electronics Constructor from Jan 1973 onwards].

Cyclops is one of the last construction projects for a fully featured cybernetic model subscribing to the conditioned reflex approach to a 'learning machine'. Galitz is heavily influenced by Grey Walter's tortoises, in both M. speculatrix and M. docilis forms. His text shows likness to Walter's book, "The Living Brain".
