Any fan of Doctor Who will immediately understand these. The cosmic nature of the famous Doctor’s mode of transport is well known. The old-fashioned dark blue police box – a pillar containing a telephone – was first seen in Britain in in 1891, but New York had the first ones, erected soon after Alexander Bell invented the telephone.
The British police box is a miniature police station for use by officers to deal with local emergencies, but the public can access the telephone to call for help. Public red telephone boxes as seen all over Britain were the result of a design competition held in the 1920s.
These days of mobiles, smart phones and tablets, it is easy to forget that we used to go to a pillar in the street to make a call, if we were away from home. Now mobile technology is taking to the air, in a sense, with the invention of the quadcopter, a miniature remote-controlled helicopter whose rotors are driven by technology originally designed to power the buzz alert of your phone.
