Playlist "Steam-Powered Telegraphy"

Steam-Powered Telegraphy

Jens Ohlig, Ingo Schwitters, Sebastian Velke and SkyTee

We have built and modified a steam-powered Telex machine and connected it to the new-fangled invention for modern telegraphy known as "the Internet". We will present this steampunkish invention in form of a lecture, thus hoping to enlighten interested ladies and gentlemen on the principles of steam engine physics, 5-bit Baudot encoding, and historic telegraphy in general.
