    "The calculator can do in several weeks, what used to take as long as a year."

    I believe the gentleman at the 2:00 mark is Rudolph Kingslake, one of the preeminent optical designers of the 20th Century. He wrote the book on lens design.

    Thread moved to "Miscellaneous Equipment," since this is more industry history than "industry news."

    My father built TTU's first computer... tubes and punch cards. The remarkable thing about that one is it did square root as well as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. De-bugging was a bitch though... according to him. I remember when he got his TI-59... what a POS... but he was completely amazed by it due to its size and ability to program in BASIC. Then came the first Apple... he was astounded... what a marvel with a whole 64k of on-board memory... how could anyone need more than that? Then Apple's 320k floppies... OMG!!!
