Amid the buzz surrounding Industry 4.0, or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it is easy to forget the effect of the technologies that powered industry’s earlier transformations. The factories of the original Industrial Revolution were driven first by water and then by steam. Later, the mass production of the Second Revolution was enabled by electricity, especially by the electric motor, which freed industrial engineers from their dependence on cumbersome belts and shafts and allowed controllable mechanical power to be delivered anywhere it was required.
