The Read-out panel
One of the huge advantages of our analog project is that also our working tools are very analog. Being around 40 years old, the old Polaroid film production machinery is just as analog as we and our products are.
In general there is no complicated computer programming needed (although there were some digital adjustments made in the past) in order to keep all machines up and running. Whenever any problem occurs, the corresponding light flashes up on the read-out panel. We then know where to find the problem to repair or to replace an old and tired feature of the machine – and zack! everything is up and running again.
