'[OT] Musical printers'
Long ago when dot matrix printers were still "rather dear" Juki (AFAIR)
made a "single dot" printer which for each column in a character stepped
the head vertically across a character height and struck it with a 'hammer'
per dot. The head thus had to operate about 5 times as fast as the
individual needles in a 7 dot high character head.
The sound it made was akin to something continually tearing open the space
time continuum. Astounding.
