any way to get the consumables for these. I recall some special roll of paper,
a liquid fixing material. didnt they come out wet?
The ones I saw had a special crt with one bright line that displayed the contents
of the line being read from the master display, as the storage crt was flooded
to read back its phosphor.
maybe these units are newer or didnt have the storage tube and instead had
graphical display memory to do the same work.
The displays were were always interesting, but in my experience the phosophor
would wear out and not work as sharp.
