Joys of well-engineered mechanical devices – Macfilos

Keith James, Macfilos:

Perhaps because life in the third decade of the twenty-first century, for those of us in technologically developed countries, seems to involve almost total submersion in an ocean of digital devices, I suspect I am not the only one who enjoys occasionally being cast away on an island of mechanical wonder, where devices involve moving parts more than moving electrons.

Mmmm, mechanical memories.
