As an addendum to my too brief note, and let it be understood that I believe
"orgitron" is a Nabokovian neologism morphologically analogous to magnetron,
cosmotron etc., see the following where another meaning is defined:

The Felix, Student Newspaper of Imperial College, Friday 7th February, 1997,
Issue 1078:

In a move which is sure to make die hard scientists slap their forehead with
a Homer Simpson like "Doh" our Roy EXCLUSIVELY reveals the existence of the
smallest particle in the Universe: the orgitron.

Unfortunately for scientists, they will never be able to see it because "it
is unlikely that any electron microscope will ever be able to see it because
it is so tiny as to be virtually undetectable; in fact it is so tiny, it

practically doesn't exist at all." He also shows how "matter is simply
pressurised 'crystallised' pre-time force flowing now in what has become a
river of time"

Hello,

I always understood the word "orgitron" to mean "electronic/mechanical
organ."

Kind regards,

Dear listers,

Gennady Kramer, who's translating my Nabokov's Ada into Russian, wonders
what to make of "orgitrons" in "organs and orgitrons," ADA 539, about four
pages into Part Four. Can anyone see anything specific?
