34630Farrington OCR from the 60's
- Mar 4, 2014I just watched an episode of "I've got a secret" from the 1960's it shows an OCR machine made by the Farrington corporation, the inventor was David Shepard. It was able to read typed caps letters in a double spaced page, it then converted the type into a punch tape that was then for demo purposes ran through a FlexoWriter to reproduce the type.
Very interesting stuff.
