Dederick invented The Steam Man and patented him in March of 1868. The Steam Man was a steam powered pair of legs rigidly attached on a horizontal swivel to the front of a carriage. Hence the carriage was able to be steered. The body of the Man is the boiler and the driving cylinder is mounted on the back. Seems like this CDV was used along with the patent (#75874).

[The Beebee Project]

Three sections are featured on this videotape. The first two sections are a documentary of two expeditions that takes place in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Bermuda. The first expedition features Eugenie Clark and Emory Kristof as they dive 1 1/2 miles deep to the ocean floor to study and record the six-gill shark, a relatively recently discovered shark that lives deep in the ocean. With the aid of bait the team and discovers that this part of the ocean floor is not as barren of animal life as once thought, and that the six-gill shark is probably both predator and scavenger to be able to live at these depths. The second expedition features a team of scientists as they dive 3000 feet deep into to mid-waters to record the bizarre and unusual sea life found at these lightless depths. The expeditions are referred to as the Beebee Project, in homage of the important discoveries made by William Beebee and Otis Barton, pioneer underwater explorers. The third section is raw footage of Joe MacInnis doing takes for presentations about undersea explorations and the human condition.
