The innards of that "power supply" are familiar, I'm sure we've had a thread on this machine here on Stardot. (Not that I can find it at the moment...)

Perhaps a little OT, but the automatic pneumatic non-destructive linear book scanner shown here is worth a look:
BookScanner.png
See a hardware prototype of an automatic, non-destructive book scanner. The machine turns pages automatically, and captures high-resolution images of each page. It was developed in 20% time, and built in the Google Workshops.

There will be a live demo and a short technical presentation, describing the design process.

Dany Qumsiyeh is an engineer on the Google Books team
See also two short amateur videos of the machine in action:
Google's early linear book scanner prototype (part 1 of 2)
Google's early linear book scanner prototype (part 2 of 2)

and an earlier prototype (one of very many) with a totally different approach:

Not a bad video. But, I've had to contact the "content maker" about asking for permission before using other people's photography :roll:

The ARM 250 SOC photo was taken from my A3010 images.

https://www.retro-kit.co.uk/page.cfm/co ... orn-A3010/

I don't understand. I almost always allow use if requested and the only thing I explicitly prohibit is using my photo's to misrepresent what people are selling on ebay and similar sites. It's not that I make it hard for people to ask as I provide a contact form and link to it from the copyright notice and every page on the site too.

He didn't ask me to post, but his Archie Shadow of the Beast demo is coming along nicely.

The splash image is from the Amiga version, which is what I believe he is showing could have been done better on the Arc.
