We knew very well that two steps were sufficient for a cycle. Subsequent devices, especially the model Z 11, were built according to this principle. For this, finely adjusted relays were needed, in which the response time was approximately equal to the fall time. In addition, the process described requires delay loops, which would also be synchronized via the switching drum. Although the cost of the switching drum and the additional delay loops appeared greater than that of the conventional circuits of communication technology, the advantages of the process were so considerable that even Schreyer and the other assistants, who understood something of communications technology, were convinced .

In any eve nt, his gallows humor was none the worse for it. 25 I also dreamed up all sorts of tricks for good stage effects using primitive means. Thus, I built a snow machine out of two simple paper rolls: confetti was wound into one roll, which was then unwound onto th e other roll , and the snow fell, evenly and beautifully. I had my pharmacist mix smoke powder {or me, which served well in our burning of Troy, among other things. Later, I had the spirits of Goethe and Schiller appear in a plume of smoke.

This hinders fault location considerably, for it is a great advantage, particularly for switches in the developmental stage, to be able to trace the work of the individual relay groups, step by step, and to have the machine pause at any chosen point in its operation. In my mechanical constructions, I used a four-stroke pulse generator, which synchronized all switching movements. These four strokes in mechanical switching clements correspond to the four plane directions, which when taken together yield a complete cycle.
