I am in this green Ireland of your ancestors. When they found out, the television station came to ask me about the Lynch genealogy, but in case they were horse thieves or something like that, I didn't say much." Edwards, Elaine; McGreevy, Ronan. "First print of controversial Che Guevara stamp sells out". The Irish Times . Retrieved 21 July 2019. also saw the introduction of pneumatic robotic arms— ones that use compressed air instead of electricity or hydraulic fluid. Nuada's name is cognate with that of Nodens, a British deity associated with the sea and healing who was equated with the Roman Mars, and with Nudd, a Welsh mythological figure. It is likely that another Welsh figure, Lludd Llaw Eraint (Lludd of the Silver Hand), derives from Nudd Llaw Eraint by alliterative assimilation. [17] The Norse god Týr is another deity equated with Mars who lost a hand. [18] Sabazios is another Indo-European deity associated with a sacred hand. Inspired by these laws, and the use of robotics in the book, engineer Joseph Engelberger and inventor George Devol filed for a patent for a programmed article transfer device — the first incarnation of the robotic arm. The goal was a version of the medical Hippocratic Oath, to do no harm, employing these robots in positions that would normally be harmful to humans.

A robot must protect its existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws. In 1973, Germany joined the robotic arms race. Its company, called Kuka, developed the first industrial robotic arm driven by six electromagnetic axels. Dubbed "Famulus," this robotic arm was the first of its kind, moving the industry away from the traditional hydraulically operated arms. 1974 — A Boom in the Robotic Arm Industry

1968 — Marvin Minsky's Tentacle Arm

brought about the introduction of the first direct-drive arm — a robotic arm with motors installed directly into each of its joints. It was the most accurate robotic arm of its time. The Pre-Patrician section of the Annals of Inisfallen have an incomplete entry on Nuada. There, in an entry on the division of Ireland between the sons of Érimón it says, "Every family [...] subsequently in Ireland is of the race of Nuada on account of his maintenance by his kinsmen and on account of his patience." [16] Mythological parallels [ edit ] The new alliance between Unimation and Vicarm proved fruitful. In 1978, they created the PUMA — Programmable Universal Machine for Assembly. This assembly robot is still in use in many research labs to this day. In 1979, Nachi also developed a motor-driving arm explicitly designed for spot-welding. 1980s — Industry Growth

His audience was 700 strong, and after a two-hour Q&A, he became convinced Japan was the next profitable market for Unimation. In 1967, Unimation partnered with Kawasaki Aircraft and Kawasaki Heavy Industries to market and produce their robots in Japan. These two Japanese companies are the ancestors of Japan's Kawasaki Robotics, which still exists today. 1968 — Marvin Minsky's Tentacle Arm Nuada's great sword was one of the Four Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann, brought from one of their four great cities. [9] In The Fate of the Children of Tuireann Nuada is described as having a one-eyed door-keeper, whose eye is replaced by the brother healers Miach and Oirmiach with that of a cat. [10] Relationships [ edit ]Robotic arms also saw the first applications in prosthetics in this decade. In 1993, a Scottish man named Campbell Aird received the first cybernetic robotic arm after he lost his arm to muscular cancer in 1982. Aird could manipulate this arm by flexing the muscles in his shoulder. 2000s — Innovation Into the Modern Day Middle Irish Núada/Núadu means hero or champion, which is "probably a euhemerized name for the deity." [2] According to Ranko Matasovic, the etymology of the name is likely from Proto-Celtic *snowdo- meaning "mist" or "haze," (related to Latin and Avestan "cloud") but the formation is "pure conjecture" that relies on the Welsh form. [2] Alternatively, the name Nuada may derive from a Celtic stem * noudont- or *noudent-, which J. R. R. Tolkien suggested was related to a Germanic root meaning "acquire, have the use of", earlier "to catch, entrap (as a hunter)". Making the connection with Nuada and Lludd's hand, he detected "an echo of the ancient fame of the magic hand of Nodens the Catcher". [3] Similarly, Julius Pokorny derives the name from a Proto-Indo-European root *neu-d- meaning "acquire, utilise, go fishing". [4] Matasovic says that the formation from Proto-Celtic *nawito- meaning "need, compel" is quite difficult.

Gerry Adams Featured in New Che Guevara Documentary by Kenneth Haynes, Irish Central, September 8, 2009

Nearly every automotive manufacturer in the world now has robotic arms installed in its factories, speeding up the assembly process. In a single shift, the average factory can now assemble more than 200 cars — more than 600 if they run the factory 24/7. This productivity jump encouraged other car manufacturers, from BMW and Volvo to Leyland, Fiat and Mercedes-Benz, to do the same, effectively securing Unimation's European market in the process. Bres, aided by the Fomorian Balor of the Evil Eye, attempted to retake the kingship by force, and war and continued oppression followed. When the youthful and vigorous Lugh joined Nuada's court, the king realised the multi-talented youth could lead the Tuatha Dé against the Fomorians, and stood down in his favour. The second Battle of Mag Tuired followed. Nuada was killed and beheaded in battle by Balor, but Lugh avenged him by killing Balor and led the Tuatha Dé to victory. [8]a b c Tipton, Gemma.
