Prismatic newspaper

Changes its political slant according to which way you tilt it

Two newspapers collaborate to produce a single edition printed on stiff boards under clear lenticular plastic. On tilting the page to the left, the reader sees the more left-leaning newspaper articles, and on tiling it to the right, they see the right-leaning articles. Both newspapers share the distribution and printing costs, reducing overheads.

And you could receive campaign promises from different politicos... UnLocal_20Paper

       This could probably be done by using the same copy, but inverting the adjectives only. Careful placing of the smaller adjective-covering prisms could perhaps be used to generate braille copy also.

       You could also use two antipodal newspapers and put the lens thingy the other way, then it would tell you the news from the antipodes if you inverted it.

       This idea could be applied to political campaign signs, as a space-saver.   

       That way, the politicians could get you coming and going even before they're elected.

       Instead of an antipodal newspaper, I was thinking of "high brow" and "low brow" issue.

       In a global news environment you have to remember that Left & Right mean different things in different markets.

       I was wondering if you could do a book, newspaper, magazine, comic, pamphlet of whatever thusly -   

       1) on one side of the page it'd be "Rocket Science for Brain Surgeons"   

       2) on the other side of the page, upside down it'd be "Brain Surgery for Rocket Scientists"   

       Then print the front and back covers accordingly and it'd be the greatest innovation in learning since....that unfortunate incident in the Alexandrian Library...

       Now you've made me think of Ray Bradbury.

       Lots of great applications of this technology: Articles printed in Chinese using the traditional vs simplified character sets; Articles printed using easy vocabulary or hard; etc.

       [+] ...should we mention anything about religious books using this?
xandram, Jun 07 2012
  

       There are books that are religious? Wow! I have always thought of them as simple, stationary objects... stationery too.
