An image of the New Zealander, from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872.
This image of the New Zealander became a popular symbol for describing the fall of the capital. Already something of a cliche by 1872, Jerrold and Doré nevertheless make use of the image as they survey the Thames and reflect on the end of their 'pilgrimage': 'Now we have watched the fleets into noisy Billingsgate; and now gossiped looking towards Wren's grand dome, shaping Macaulay's dream of the far future, with the tourist New Zealander upon the broken parapets, contemplating something matching - "The glory that was Greece - The grandeur that was Rome".'
Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859) was a British historian, writer and politician. In 1840 he wrote: “And she [meaning the Catholic Church – see below] may still exist in undiminished vigour when some traveller from New Zealand shall, in the midst of a vast solitude, take his stand on a broken arch of London Bridge to sketch the ruins of St Paul’s.”

I now have a strong desire to have an impossibly long articulated arm stretching to the middle of our kitchen or living room.

I wonder what the specs are on those oscilloscopes. Those things aren't cheap.

You speak my mind. Although that looks more like a curve tracer. Plus a whole stack of spec-ans and func-gens.
I want to live in the future where test equipment is a common household furnishing.
