WEST CHESTER, Pa. — Have you ever wondered why we find it fascinating sometimes to watch machines work? They can be so complex and must do exactly the right thing to get the correct outcome. Some machines are built to do jobs quickly and efficiently where are others are made to do their job in a theatrical manner.
