Geek Of The Week: Heath Robinson

Heath Robinson was a cartoonist who was best known for his depictions of complicated machines that accomplish simple tasks. While most of these drawings were never meant to be actual products, his designs are amazing. Some of them have found their way into college curriculum and other areas of academia. Robinson created most of his work during World War I and he died in 1944. Today, his artwork is proudly on display in the Heath Robinson Museum (which opened in 2016).
