Electronics, then and now - Ersatz TV

There is more than the item about electronics in this long awaited 11th issue of Ersatz TV. Annik Rubens kicks off with sirens. The old metal pots on German roofs are no longer worth the maintenance and the question rises: what system will replace it? How can we alert the whole population of war and disaster.

Then there are the pictures of Munich's Oktoberfeste, with emphasis on the Ferris Wheel attraction type contraptions. Among others, one hand driven device built in 1924.

But the high-light is Hartmut Grawe's interview with the Physicist Dr. Ernst Hofmeister about the development of micro-electronics in the 1980's. Very nice.

More Ersatz TV:
The last before Summer break,
Ersatz TV from the Underground,
The way of the plants,
The experts love Ersatz TV,
Deja-vu on Ersatz-TV.
