    Actually I read from "Waldo & Magic Inc", but I stopped reading after I read "Waldo" story. I didn't expect the story is about magic-based speculative fiction. There are technological-based factors in the story (I read about the waldoes in this story from a few articles years back), but the main factor is energy from Other World. The main plot is not so easily to see at first. I see this short story is about the growing of Waldo. Actually I read from "Waldo & Magic Inc", but I stopped reading after I read "Waldo" story.

    Waldo by Robert Heinlein I read this book many years ago; I was probably 15 or 16. As a budding engineer and scientist, I completely understood how remote manipulators "Waldoes" would work in the future. In November of 2013, I had my prostate and seminal vesicles removed surgically, due to locally advanced prostate cancer. The surgeon is the brilliant Dr Chris Ogden, and his instrument is the DaVinci surgical robot, a waldo. The robot has 4 arms inside you, and the surgeon sits at a stereoscopic w Waldo by Robert Heinlein I read this book many years ago; I was probably 15 or 16. As a budding engineer and scientist, I completely understood how remote manipulators "Waldoes" would work in the future. In November of 2013, I had my prostate and seminal vesicles removed surgically, due to locally advanced prostate cancer. The surgeon is the brilliant Dr Chris Ogden, and his instrument is the DaVinci surgical robot, a waldo. The robot has 4 arms inside you, and the surgeon sits at a stereoscopic workstation, with 2-handed x 5-finger controls, plus foot pedals - a virtuoso playing Bach, translated to healing, inside me. http://www.mercyannualreport.com/wp-c... Amazing that Heinlein foresaw this, as did I upon first glance at his story. I am alive today due to the extraordinary skill of Dr Ogden, and the amazing engineers who created the DaVinci surgical waldo. A few months later, I was able to find a copy of the book, and some cover art, which I prepared and presented to Dr Ogden with the above references to Heinlein's work, and my boyhood. He was delighted and amazed. A brilliant man, with a brilliant and extraordinarily active mind. We always have such a good time talking medicine and science, and sometimes, politics. I am blessed.

    I read this in "Waldo & Magic, Inc." decades ago, and while the image of Waldo in his space station home stayed with me over the years, my brain had mercifully edited out the magic. Criminy.

    I didn't understand any of this story and gave up at the 1\4 mark because it wasn't getting any better. I didn't understand any of this story and gave up at the 1\4 mark because it wasn't getting any better.
