NOW COPY on the GO! (Oct, 1961)
Rather than speculate Anken’s patent for a “Portable Photocopying Apparatus” may be found here. The Polaroid lawsuit I found against Anken involved trademark infringement over the name of one of their copy machines and had nothing to do with this portable copier. Reading the patent apparently a sensitized sheet and the original are exposed to light and the exposed sheet goes through development and fixing. The fact that this copier came out shortly after Xerox began offering office machines using their dry process probably contributed to its disappearance.
