Claw lore holds that the original, coin-operated “crane machine” was invented around 1893. However, it took until 1926 for appearance of the world’s first patented crane game, the Erie Digger: a countertop glass box, with a tiny metal crane that could be raised and lowered with a simple wheel. In the early ’80s, though, riding on the success of arcade video games, interest in the claw machine revived. Manufacturers designed a machine that met all the qualifications for a skill game, allowing the claw to be freely controlled by a joystick. This design gave a convincing appearance of skill to courts, and thus became the claw machine we know today.
