Hephaestus, the lame god of fire and forge,  is known for inventing the three-legged stool (like a tripod) and the world’s first robots  (his helpers, includes a complete set of life-size golden handmaidens who helped around the house). The Roman name for Hephaestus is Vulcan, and his workplace is also located on a volcano.
