Very cool. The lower machine really gives you a sense of the intricate dance the element does to type letters on a page. It's poetry in motion.
It is amazing to see what mechanics are involved in the typing of a single letter! The "guts" of the Selectric work like like a Rube Goldberg creation.
First video is not available for some reason. Do you have a link to the original?
Sorry, Bill, and anyone else who had difficulty viewing the videos. I had all sorts of problems loading the videos and keeping them on the post. The blog will only take very short high-res films. I have now loaded two films, one very short at high-res and one much longer at low-res. I hope it is working properly now. Please let me know if it isn't.
