There are many kinds of mechanical memory. In particular, I recall
an early TTY device that used a large rotating drum with cams
embedded in the surface. One could flip a cam one way or the other
and then read them out. I'm trying to remember what sort of machine
this was used on and its application, but my memory sadly fails me.
