A photocopier, yes, but this model makes use of a double-glazed copying plate, between the sheets of which lies a sprinkling of iron filings. These iron filings can, using either the built in etcha-sketch mechanism controlled magnet or whichever of your jewel-encrusted magnetic Sceptres of Power you happen to have with you each given day, be moved and positioned just so, so that copy documents feature faintly discernible occurrences of patterns, pentangles, your grinning, gurning face u.s.w., to engender unease or cheer, depending.

       For some (worrying) reason I keep reading this as paedophile copier... A most excellent idea +
