    There was this 18th century clockmaker named Pierre Jaquet-Droz
    (1721 - 1790) of La Chaux de Fonds, dreaming of creating the "perpetuum mobile",
    as did many others of the time.
    Along with his son Henri-Louis, he did manage to build some extrodinary automats,
    including a "writing android".
    The machine was in fact able to write simple sentences. Eerie. :D

    Looks like texting and apps may be a challenge.
