1/25,000 of a second of surgery (Jan, 1947)
This is the same camera I posted an article about yesterday (Snap Happy Camera). Apparently a year after it was shown in MI the Army decided to use it in an ad. It looks they used almost the exact same photos. They seem close enough that I’m wondering if the Army ad just painted over the guy’s hand in the originals used in the MI article.
1/25,000 of a second of surgery
Here it is… the clinical recording camera. Developed by the Army Signal Corps for the surgeons of the Medical Department, it can “stop” an intricate operation with a silent, built-in flash lasting 1/25,000 of a second!
INFOCOM – DEADLINE (May, 1982)
When I used to buy Infocom games in the 80’s I always loved how they came with all sorts of “props” in the box. Particularly the Microscopic Space Fleet in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Also, how crazy is it to see a video game ad that mentions availability for the PDP-11?
