    I think they number in the "zillions". I recently saw a problem about how ink gets deposited in an inkjet printer. I don't know if the problem was accurate, but that, or laser printers, or both could be interesting. Older style TVs and computer monitors (before they all disappear) use CRT tubes to create images.
