    That drawing "toy" is actually called a pantograph. Although your example is rather poorly constructed, it's a serious bit of kit. Every coin ever produced requires it's use to scale down the artists original to the size of the coin to be stamped. I do find it strange, however, how you'd expect an ice cream maker to use magic rather than actual recipes to make ice cream. Would you expect to just chuck a cow and wheat into an oven to make steak pies?

    The EZ Tracer would definitely be useful in high school or college. Probably not so much later than that, depending on your job, but Id definitely recommend it to a struggling student.
    Or it could also just be used by kids to change the size of something to fit its need. Want a small notecard-size of a picture? Easy. Want a large poster-like sized one? Done!
    Edit: Changed a bit of wording

  • I have no name I also have no ideas for videos

    First one looks like slap chop

    The EZ tracer is actually a drafting tool for scaling objects. Fancier ones have different lengths and pivot points. But its mathematically perfect scaling.
