Vintage 1963 Medical Anatomy Motion Life Light Sign Educational Teaching Display:
Up for sale is a very unique anatomical educational display motion sign. Called a "Motion-In-Life" display, made by Mark-La-Mation Inc. in 1963. It appears to be a travelers case because there is a handle on top of the metal frame. Plastic inserts slide in and out of the top for the different body systems. The one pictured is the circulatory system, and it also includes slides for the skeletal system, nervous system, and heart. The additional slides are housed in the back of case, but I am unable to pull them out because I don't want to risk damaging them. When turned on, there is a motorized wheel that spins around to depict the pathways of the display. I'm sure my descriptions aren't doing this item justice, so please check out the video below!
Now for the condition. As you can see in the pictures, it's not perfect. I will let the winning buyer make their own interpretation of the visual cosmetics of the sign. What you can't see is the light and motor functions. Both take a while to get going, but eventually will work. The light flickers and flickers away, and will randomly kick on. The motor sometimes starts right away, but other times it will take it's time and need an manual push to get it started. There is a switch on the side, but it doesn't seem to do anything. Once the sign is plugged in, it turns on. Someone handy can tinker with it and get it working perfectly. The additional inserts seem to be stuck together. Given their age, I don't want to disturb them and I will leave it up to the buyer to get them out. I don't know the condition of them. Measures 21"x19"x8". Selling as-is.I've never seen one like it before, and am by no means an expert on it, so please check out the pictures and video of the actual item below. I'll do my best to help answer any questions.
