British Industries Fair

Nature volume 139, pages 380381 (27 February 1937) | Download Citation



THE range of scientific exhibits, or of exhibits having some specific scientific interest, at the Olympia section of the British Industries Fair, was this year wider than ever, and it becomes increasingly difficult, if not indeed impossible, each succeeding year to attempt anything like an adequate survey of the exhibits likely to be of direct interest to scientific workers or to other readers who have an interest in scientific matters. All that can be attempted within the necessarily limited space is to direct attention to certain novel features of this year's exhibits. Perhaps one general observation that may be made is that, as the years go by, one is increasingly aware of how scientific instruments, at one time only of academic or quasi-academic interest, are steadily invading the domain of industry and finding industrial applications not even dreamt of until recently.
