Analog Computers. Could I sometime put my hands on one of those?

Analog Computers. Could I sometime put my hands on one of those?

As far as I can remember there are analog, digital, and hybrid computers and I have been involved with digital computers only so I have blatant ignorance of the other computer types. I experience a kind of mental pain when remembering such personal condition.

A brief search on Internet gave me some good readings:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analog_computer
http://www.elecdesign.com/Articles/Index.cfm?AD=1&ArticleID=14738

I wonder if sometime in my future this type of computers could get back again and be part of mainstream computing.
