I just had to stay up till 4 in the morning to catch this. It was called "Ancient Discoveries." It was about this guy, last name Heron who made
some quite amazing machines about 2000 years ago.
Some of his creations were:
- coin operated water dispenser
- mechanical bird that sung
- automatic doors
- machine gun type weapon, looked like it shot arrows
- wind powered organ
- rotating steam ball
- automated devices
I found a link that will give you some more information.
