Step 1: Select Suited Vintage Gadget
Too vintage gadgets won't make it:
I made a tests with a Sharp PC-1600 (1986) and a Sony Clié (2002). My choice ended to be my Sony Clié (Palm-compatible PDA).
Step 2: Create a Note, Photocopy With Reduction
Remember your great graffiti skill? It will come back pretty quickly.
Place the PDA on the copier face down, mask unused area with blank paper to save ink, then:
- set printing quality to high,
- reduce to approx 66%,
- put strong blank paper in the tray,
- make sure the PDA's backlight is still on,
- start color copy.
Step 3: Cut and Use
Drawback: not very paper efficient. If you have many suitable vintage gadgets, copy many together per sheet. Or, turn on your PC, make a scan, crop the picture, and create a document with 10 copies of the picture per sheet.
