You may be right that eventually the device may have become commonplace.
But still, there would have had to be a sizeable capital outlay incurred in the design, development, construction and testing of the prototype unit.
Makes you wonder just who the financial backers may have been and what was in it for them. I'm sure that even as far as 2000 years ago, as today, anyone investing large sums of venture capital in an untried project would be expecting to recoup a tidy profit for their risk.
Your first sentence to me implies , that you are claiming the actual device in hand is the original prototype .There is no evidence to support this one way or another .
