Analog computers


via Rick:

"Analog synthesizers are about the only remaining descendants of analog computers.

Here is a couple of great pics:

Polish analog computer AKAT-1
(from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analog_computer)

Hitachi 240 Analog Computer
(from http://www.vaxman.de/my_machines/hitachi/240/240.html)

Cheers

  2. Yeah, that's an interesting bit of design. Kind of reminds me of the Minimoog-A prototype.

    I wonder what that punched paper tape on the floor went to... it looks gigantic.
