Kindle 1935: Contraption for automatic book reading

Posted on by Mike Evans

Here’s the original Kindle, as it appeared in an the April 1935 edition of Everyday Science and Mechanics. Pity it never took off. I would have loved one of these in the days before LDC and e-ink screens. It would have been a good complement for typewriters, Gestetner duplicators and carbon paper.
