This device is the size of a paperback book and cost 55. It
works perfectly. I would love to go back in time and show it to
the engineers of 1950!


But it wouldn't work on their old fashioned electricity. :-(


Why not?

Have you seen how chunky old wiring from the 1950s used to look
like? Modern electronics wouldn't work properly using those bulky
old electrons because today's seminconductors are contructed with
extremely tiny wires.

Well today's electrons are digital, unlike the old analogue "vinyl"
electrons :-)

Give over, according to Feynman there is only 1 electron in the whole
universe, it just moves backwards and forwards in time appearing as
many electrons to all observers.

Were the atoms bigger too? That would explain why they were so keen on
splitting them.

If you use silicon ICs to split the atom, do you use fission chips? ;-)
