Today, we carry around incredibly complex devices in our bags, travel in ever more sophisticated vehicles, and hear talk about artificial intelligence. Each of these has a simple idea in common—mechanical feedback—when a system provides information about the way it is running that allows for either the human, or the machine itself, to change the system. Through a series of mechanical exhibits, visitors are invited into the world of machinery for a look at the history of mechanical engineering and some of the concepts that have shaped significant parts of our contemporary world.
