Making boats do what you like without actually needing to be aboard seems to have been popular, for it was today in 1906 that a Spanish inventor called Leonardo Torres y Quevedo demonstrated his telekino, a device which enabled him to pilot an unmanned boat to shore.
The telekino is now seen as the beginning of remote control, but it was clearly not the end.
