IBM Selectric Typewriter & its digital to analogue converter

Using slow motion video Bill Hammack, the engineer guy, shows how
IBM’s revolutionary “golf ball” typewriter works. He describes the
marvelous completely mechanical digital-to-analogue converter that
translates the discrete impulse of the keys to the rotation of the
type element. (This is the typewriter featured on the television series Mad Men.)
