This is the first and only functional Memex.

The outside of this full desk-sized machine looks and acts like it was built in 1945, the year that Vannevar Bush wrote "As We May Think".

Sadly, Vannevar Bush's memex was far beyond what the analog technologies of 1945 could enable so for decades it remained just a fantasy. The Transmutable team gathered all available documentation, spoke with experts, and then carefully fabricated Memex #001 to match Dr. Bush's specifications.

Inside the desk is a modern computer running simulation software to make the Memex #001 perform as if it contains equipment from 1945. No era-appropriate dry photography is involved.
