    • I agree. I actually cringed looking at the posters with arms and legs getting caught in rotating machinery.

      Did the USSR not have any eye protection?

  1. The posters are more gruesome than in the US. Which I think is good, shows reality. In the US, they’re a little more “comic.”

    I’d like the see that explanation of how the robot speaks. Because that’s not even a close depiction.

  2. LOL. I’ve been the dude sliding off the roof. But I’m so skinny I was able to catch the edge. Being light has it’s advantages. Also (gulp) the drunk at work. 馃槈

  3. The tool rest poster hits home to machinists. My hand once slipped into a grinder wheel. I saw a puff of smoke and only later realized that was the skin on my hand atomizing. You can’t work in a machine shop for any length of time and not have the experience of watching your blood drip on a concrete floor.
    Great post. Has to be one of my all-time favorites.

  4. “В бубен” это подделка современная. Ты изума выжил, думать что это оригинал?

  5. “Threw rags about? Get a hit on the face.” is obviously a modern makeover. It uses a sort of slang unacceptable back then.

    The “mighty robot duck” refers to the past, not future of robotics. Hey. there’s even an article in Wikipedia about “Dr. Vaucanson’s mechanic duck”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digesting_Duck

  6. it must be hide to children so that they won’t like to be violent person…..however, I adore the drawings…..

  7. I disagree that the pictures with robots reflect Soviet view of the future robotics. For example, the text under the duck says “Watkinson’s mechanical duck”. It represents the history of robotics. The other images are just symbolical depictions to separate the chapters, they are not conceptual views about future. I had this book btw.

  8. Just in case someone didn’t cringe enough: the picture on page five, “Don鈥檛 carry the bottles without corks.” – the inscription on the bottle (“Kislota”) means “acid” in Russian.
