Comment: Ah, fluidics (Score 1) 26

When I was a kid my parents had a collection of very old Britannica supplements from the 1960s. Some sort of yearly book for each year after the main books came out.

Anyways, when I was a kid I was always impressed by the pictures and the descriptions. One of the articles was about fluidics, the pictures of plates of metal with holes, piled up and bolted together and doing logic operations with boiling liquids and what not.

I'm just wool gathering, but it seems like the 1960s were unusually fertile in all fields and it's fun to see one of these "anything goes"-type technologies still being useful after so long.

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
