Inventor Rowland Emett is seen working on a mechanical automated 'computer'; commissioned as a show piece for a famous computer firm. He fits a bone with a small lampshade and adds a wheel to the end.
Various shots show 'The Forget-Me-Not Computer'; an amazing and surreal contraption with many turning wheels and moving parts. Small balls revolve around china heads, a currant bun is lowered into an information feeding bowl, mechanical birds punch holes in playing cards, and so on.
A sign on the machine reads 'The Honeywell - Emett Forget-Me-Not Computer' - Honeywell is probably the company that commissioned the contraption.
Note: There are detailed notes on file about the computer. See also 'Emett's Tractor' - CP 292 and 'Emett's Ideal Home' - CP 113. Cuts exist - see separate record.
