If you want to see one of the Philips plastic chute machines in action, here it is https://youtu.be/rjXEiY8677w?t=1m53s and it's not half as exciting to watch as you may have imagined.


The most common comment on this video is to mention the auto-reverse deck from Nakamichi seen in the movie 9 1/2 weeks. Not too sure why when it’s already shown in this video. But since everyone wants to talk about the Nakamichi mechanism - here is a video showing it in action. https://youtu.be/5mEQGmyDhiY?t=2m43s

Also for some reason loads of people have insisted I state that amongst the other auto-reverse mechanisms not shown in the video, you can use a four track head so the tape can be played in either direction, this solution is commonly seen in small *players* like Walkman (Walkmen?) and car stereos.
NOTE: 4 track heads are *not common* in *recorders* .... just players.
The machine featured in this video is a *recorder*.
