Here is a great website that documents a until now unknown (to me at
least) tabulating system invented in Australia in around 1913 used at
horse tracks.

It is a pretty amazing history. It extends into the digital computer age
and goes into some detail about the use of PDP 11's which eventually
replaced the mechanical and then electromechanical design.
