1933: Alzetta’s Mechanical Horse

Alzetta's Mechanical Horse

“A mechanical horse, designed to substitute for the farm animal or even light tractor, has been invented by an engineer here, Signor D. G. Alzetta.“I see no reason why legs should not be as fundamentally a motive force as wheels,” Signor Alzetta said. “Practically everything that nature permits to move, except the enormous forces of the sea and glaciers, gets there on legs. Wheels were the invention or afterthought of men.””

- The Harford Courant, 1933
