A few years ago i saw a documentation about Claude Shannon. As a electrical hobbiest that i am i were totaly stunned by the electronic devices he invented during that times. Espetially not only because of that it where real possible to create for example a remote controled toy car during that times, also because of his humor that he put into the construction of some of his inventions. I remembered him a few weeks ago and started to search the web for him and his devices. And hey! Some of it became popular :) It seems that his ultimate machines are now part of the pop or web culture.
