Astrology Goes Coin-In-The-Slot (Sep, 1935)
Astrology Goes Coin-In-The-Slot
THE ancient astrologists who spent weeks in studying the stars to cast a horoscope would be amazed at the 1935 electric coin-in-the-slot astrologer which delivers a forecast at the drop of a coin. To determine the supposed influence the stars will have on his life, the operator merely plugs in on his birth date. From the hundreds of cards within the highly intricate mechanism then selects a card corresponding to the date, promptly delivering it through a slot. Electricity is used in the operation of the mechanical astrologer.
