The Teletype Model 28 printing mechanism is a thing of technical beauty. It's the clumination of Teletype's design efforts, and you can see that they learned a lot of lessons with their previous designs. Teletype produced a few models after the 28, but with the rise of computers, the level of mechanical complexity was never repeated.
