According to Wikipedia, on September 25, 1906, “In the presence of the king and before a great crowd, Leonardo Torres Quevedo successfully demonstrates the invention of the Telekino in the port of Bilbao, guiding a boat from the shore, in what is considered the birth of the remote control.” Wow, I had no idea that the origin story behind remote controls was so epic. The featured image is the Zenith “Space Commander 600,” also appropriately epic.
