Erector Sets

In 1949, an Erector set was used to build the model of the modern artificial heart by Drs. William Sewell and William Glenn of the Yale School of Medicine. The external pump successfully bypassed the heart of a dog for more than an hour. In the 1970s, Claude Shannon constructed a bounce-juggling machine from an Erector set. The "Soarin'" attraction at Disneyland Resort's Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, California and Walt Disney World's Epcot near Orlando, Florida was designed with an Erector set. Once manufactured by the A.C. Gilbert Company, ERECTOR is owned and marketed by Meccano , France.
