Look at the branching though. Shifting the branching to earlier in time allows for greater flexibility in time critical operations.
Right. That’s what makes this a fascinating notion as it’s familiar but adding meaning to existing forms.
Circuit diagrams like this are probably one of the easiest things to read.
They’re based on railroads with railroad switching stations, stops, etc, so bringing back this notion of travel time in track length makes sense.
Difference between milliseconds and microseconds is a huge difference when compounded and being able to identify and remove bottlenecking is useful.
On the left there’s two two way switches that combine into a single 3 way switch
Effectiveness vs efficiency. Always on two axises, entangled values
This is cool (to me) – shows equivalent symbols between logic gates and air hydraulic symbols.
Love this one. I just replaced my hot water heater and you can *see* the actual pressure tank doing its job as “memory” in this icon.
We don’t normally think of a “thermal expansion tank” as equivalent to memory but that’s just what it is.
