In 1961, the IBM Selectric revolutionized the office world with its speed and efficiency. Housed in a distinctively curved, die-cast body designed by mid-century industrial designer Eliot Noyes (1910–77), the Selectric was electrically operated, and printed via an interchangeable “golf ball” typing element controlled by an analog “whiffle tree” switch.
