This is a semi-fake experiment which I believe could work, but which I have not fully prototyped into a functional state. It is faked to show a concept.
By treating plain paper with a mix of food-grade ascorbic acid and a solution of UV ink infused with a setting agent, an LCD panel could cheaply be modified with UV LED backlights to become a low cost “photo-copier”.
Useful for quick copies when away from the office or when a printer is too bulky.
Monotone only. Low resolution.
