The Kempelen submachine gun toured extensively throughout Europe from Vienna to Paris and London, beating up nobles and even crowned heads - ndash; Frederick the Great and Napoleon. Attempts to penetrate the automaton’s secret have been made repeatedly, often by the most insidious methods that endangered the life of Kempelen and his companions ... Viktor L.
