A brief history of the heliotron, one of the promising candidates for a commercial fusion reactor, is given. The heliotron device can be operated in steady state, since it has a stable magnetic field with high rotational transform and high shear and without ohmic current in the plasma. The results of experimental and theoretical studies on heliotron devices are reported, and future prospects are given
