George Devol Patents

I met George Devol at an International Symposium on Industrial Robots when he finally won the Engelberger Award. I have a great deal of respect for his work. He was the father of what would become the Unimation robot. One needs only to look at some of his patents and the dates associated with them to understand how pioneering his work really was. I have included several of them, but I didn't do a thorough search of everything he held patents on.
