He's using the telephone that lends an extra hand
For people who want to keep both hands free when they telephone, Bell Telephone Laboratories engineers have devised a new telephone with a sensitive microphone in its base. To use it, simply press a button. The microphone picks up your voice and sends it on its way. Your party's voice comes to you through a small loudspeaker. Both hands are left free.
Operation Thinking Cap
It takes more than a slide rule alone, these days, to perform the computations necessary for scientific problems such as those encountered in atmospheric research. The scientist of today, equipped with modern data-gathering devices, is faced with a stupendous data-reduction task which requires extremely high speed computation. That's why the Univac Scientific electronic computing system (formerly known as the ERA 1103) has proven to be invaluable to scientists and engineers alike.
Look, Dad—They print wires now!
In a wide variety of electronic wonders—from hearing aids to guided missiles—printed wiring, etched from paper-thin Anaconda "Electro-Sheet" Copper, saves space, time, and money. Remember the time you tried to fix the radio? Inside you found a maze of wires. You hustled it down to the corner repair shop. It was no job for a novice. Look in some of today's radios. The wires are gone—or seem to be. They are printed!
