this is a warehourse indeed. these equipments are not dependent /connected, ie. they don't have to be packed so close. Is IBM lab so short of space? maybe, or maybe they just want to wow those outsiders. If you take any fab tool's cover off it will look same or more complex. this just shows how inexperienced Rick is.

For a while, it looked like a warehouse of previously useful equipment.

rick, next time u report a lab, spend sometime to check their publication records. some picture like these won't tell anything. this type of report just exposing your ignorance and naive.

Opto-22 interesting. IBM has made a few attempts at industrial control, ("Gearbox" mid 1980s). IBM purchases industrial control hardware & software in my (limited) experience.

My thought exactly. It looks like equipment on the bench is being used, old junk in the cabinets. It looks like the lab and single bench isn't big enough.

These vacuum deposition are notorious for lots of pipes and cables. At one point, IBM actually had to excavate out a space below the floor of one of the systems to maintain it and add some capabilities to the chamber.

some old folks of IBM lab should switch to a college or sth instead of hanging around and squeezing out nonsense. this one i'm not 100% sure, but for the other IBM achievement --the 10k nanotube microchip, I can tell you safely it's a piece of junk, completely hoax.

Seemingly the most manipulated and utilized device in the lab.

Such mess indicates 'disorganization' and related 'inefficiency' (drag and impeded progress) to me in most cases. Hey, where is that damn 'xxxxxxx' I need and been searching for all day and where can I find it if we even have one? I've entered some extremely messy development lab and seen it all. Personally cleaned up and organized the lab for 4 weeks and started (continued) a manufacturing process development with results and success within one year and this after 4 years of neglect, frustration and failure by the previous 'undisciplined' R&D crew.

The last device is really nice... I wish I had one at home. ;-)
