Electronics-Themed Comics
January 1963 Electronics World

January 1963 Electronics World

January 1963 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents 

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here are a couple more electronics-themed comics from Electronics World, good for winding down the week. They appeared in the January 1963 issue. The page 86 comic reminds me of the professor I had for solid state circuit design. He was supposedly the first person to successfully use gallium arsenide (GaAs) as a semiconductor, although he also did pioneering work with silicon. Anyway, Prof. Anderson would say he takes at least one "business" trip each year to Portugal in order to search for higher quality raw semiconductor material in sand on the beaches. He spoke Portuguese, BTW. The page 89 comic is reminiscent of the pre-GPS days of navigation. Raise you hand if you ever drove around utterly lost while looking for an off-the-beaten-path location. How about driving through an unfamiliar city using a crummy paper map, and then hitting a blocked off or missing road? Since getting my first GPS in the 2011 Jeep Patriot, I rarely drive anywhere without the moving map displayed and the nice lady in the dashboard providing reminders for when to turn. These and the other comics in the huge list at the bottom of the page make good fodder for opening your technical presentations.
