  • Description

    No title.

    A new invention is demonstrated - a robot plough. Man starts this device then sits on the ground as it moves off on its own. We see various shots of the machine ploughing the field. It suddenly stops and reverses. C/U of the furrows. "Every time the plough reaches the end anchors, the machine (which hauls itself along by cables and a friction drum) reverses itself and moves one up to eat out another furrow!" M/S of the plough moving towards the camera. C/U of the braking mechanism. The plough moves away again. Very short item - incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 647.

    Note: flash frame intertitles.
