Black And White

28 04 2009

Take a while…sit back, and just think about how good photocopiers are. At the moment I am doing a lot of photocopying in my job, and yes it is annoying and possibly giving me cancer, but I can’t help but admire the way that photocopiers go about doing their jobs.

Taking whatever you can throw at them, paper, cats, arses at office parties and making a 2D impression on either A4 or A3. You can change the colour of the paper if you want, or have it duplex…Stapled! No problem there.

Your standard Xerography (dry heat) photocopier was introduced by guess who?….Xerox in the 1960’s and works via a complicated procedure of making the toner positively charged and sticking it to the negatively charged area to make the black bits.

Anyway, now you can whack in 50 sheets of paper and get 500 back in no great time. Think how difficult that would have been years ago.

Here’s to the photocopier. Cheers for making my life easier.
