Solly Angel

Oxford University Press

The repeated failures of the past six months led to a number of existential and not-so-existential critiques of the project, critiques that Solly Angel had thus far managed to evade. He now worried that these subversive critiques would slowly drain him of the conviction that he needed to sustain him in the face of persistent failures. The deadline of early March set by Philips for the working load cell would not be met. Thus this led to a new prototype, the double-anchor load cell. In general, the required load cell needed to be cheap and accurate. The thin load cell problem was solved, that much was clear. The cat face load cell was a simple and therefore cheap solution to that problem, one that could be easily copied unless Solly had some patent protection.
