    It's above the menu on the linked page. The future of puppetmastery will include virtual (existing only on-screen) and robotic puppets, controlled wirelessly by voice and hand gestures. Here I offer four nano-tributes to this evolution.​
    I met the man who coined "roboticist", Isaac Asimov, in 1964.
    Tony Sarg was a great puppet pioneer in the early days of T.V.. He crafted the marionette held by Albert at left.
    Bil Baird and his wife Cora followed Tony Sarg. This is Walter, Charlemane, and Bil.​
    Now we have Muppets, thank you Jim Henson ...​
