Memexes

Take a look at the Memexes designed by the students of the Cybertexts Seminar at the University of Bayreuth. Starting from Bush’s first text about the Memex, they were to discus the look of the machine and to depict it, as they understood it, at the blackboard. Remarkable is the glimpse one can get of the imaginative framework of a person in 2008 if one asks these questions: How do screens look like? How do levers look like? What’s the size and the form of a keyboard? What else is important about such a machine and working with a Memex in general.
