    Dead medium: Mobile Cavalry Telephone
    From: griker@MICROSOFT.com (Greg Riker)
    Source(s): Popular Mechanics, Sept 1997 page 16: "90 Years Ago: September 1907" (includes photo)
    "Wired Horses
    "The cavalry announced plans to equip its scouts with a new type of mobile telephone. Like earlier horse-phones, it had a cord. Wire stored on a 5-mile reel played out as a scout rode. The improved model let a rider make calls without having to first dismount and then drive a spike into the ground to complete the electrical connection. Instead, the grounding wire was attached to the horse's skin. The mild electrical current would pass through its body to its hoofs, one of which was almost always touching the ground."
    (((bruces remarks: How many "earlier horse-phones" could there have been? It's not hard to see why this bizarre telephony experiment failed to prosper; how can a surreptitious, fast-moving cavalry scout deploy a five- mile long telephone reel? Still, this medium may have been developed for some time. The fact that the horse itself became an integral part of the network: this cumulative improvement conveys a real sense of design elegance.)))

    Dead medium: Vision III Imaging; Brown's Relief Projection, Oscillatory Projection, Motional Perspective, Direct Stereoscopic Projection; Brown's StereophotoDuplikon, Brown's Kinoplastikon; Brown's Stereoscopic Transmitter
    From: s-herbert@easynet.co.uk (Stephen Herbert)
    Source(s): SMPTE Journal Vol. 100 No. 6, June 1991 *The Book of Photography* ed. Paul N. Hasluck, 1905 "Theodore Brown's Magic Pictures == the Art and Inventions of a Multi-Media Pioneer" by Stephen Herbert (forthcoming).
    Re: 3-D without glasses - VISIDEP and similar systems.
    Vision III Imaging Inc. developed a 3-D system described in the SMPTE Journal, Vol.100 No.6, June 1991. I saw a test reel at the time. Only effective while the camera was moving, and then had only a limited effect. It was carefully thought out, but basically, it wasn't impressive enough to be worth the trouble of shooting with the necessary special two-camera rig. The article also includes information on related experiments in the 1980s.
    Dead Media fans will be pleased to know that the origins of this system go back much, much further. It was first proposed by an English experimenter Theodore Brown, in 1903 (following experiments and observations dating back to the 1890s). "Brown's Method of Relief Projection" is described by the inventor in THE BOOK OF PHOTOGRAPHY edited by Paul N. Hasluck (Cassell & Co.Ltd,1905).
    Brown called his system, variously, Oscillatory Projection, Motional Perspective, and Direct Stereoscopic Projection. He worked on it, with occasional demonstrations, until at least 1930. An attempt was made to market a short film, DANCING, in 1912. (It was advertised in the Kinematograph and Lantern Weekly).
    (Now the plug). The full story of Brown and his many '3-D' still and motion picture systems, (including the StereophotoDuplicon, the Stereoscopic Transmitter, the Kinoplastikon) and his many other eccentric inventions (the Spirograph motion picture machine, Red/Green moving picture books),is told in "Theodore Brown's Magic Pictures == the Art and Inventions of a Multi-Media Pioneer" by Stephen Herbert (130 page hardback, 200 illustrations), to be published by The Projection Box, late Nov 1997.

    Dead Media Project
    Working Notes arranged by category
    ...
    So in this futile attempt to categorize "dead media" I try to stick things in vague categories derived from the human senses. But even this fails as you will see. This is one of those tasks where I discourage suggestions and encourage action; if you can come up with a better scheme (which means: email me an edited copy of this HTML index file!) by all means do so.
    Here is the list of new, uncategorized Notes most recently submitted to the list. They will later be hand-placed in this index.
    ...
    January 2001
    TABLE OF CATEGORIES:
    VISUAL CATEGORIES: Media that appeals directly to the human eye, essentially, for the generation or transmission or storage of visual images. The idea is that images are moved/stored via analogy rather than symbolically; eg. photography. Visual "data" such as text or writing is probably contained in the SYMBOLIC categories.
