Object Class: Safe Euclid
(Revision proposed 12/24/17, approved 1/09/18. See Incident Report 3422-A and Formal Request for Revision & Upgrade)

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-3422 is a Sholes-model typewriter (hereafter referred to as SCP-3422-1) attached to a ticker-tape machine (SCP-3422-2) via a system of wires and cables. SCP-3422-1 itself has been modified extensively, with an estimated 5,000 parts including gears, levers, and springs. SCP-3422-2 has not been modified apart from its connection to the SCP-3422-1. Power is provided to SCP-3422-2 via a standard North American wall plug attached to it.

SCP-3422 functions like a typical typewriter. Its anomalous abilities arise when instructions or algorithms are typed using a specified syntax or language. These instructions will be carried out when the user presses the Carriage Return lever, which begins a new line on the page.

The abilities of SCP-3422 include:

  • Accessing paper documents and printing them via SCP-3422-2
  • Locating paper documents by printing their geographic coordinates or relative locations
  • Reorganizing libraries and folders of paper documents
  • Editing paper documents
  • Deleting paper documents

SCP-3422 was discovered in a Foundation raid of a warehouse in ████████, █████. MTF Alpha-4 ("Pony Express") were alerted to the warehouse after tracking a suspected Serpent's Hand member to the area. Along with SCP-3422, 23 other anomalous items of low interest to the Foundation were found. All items were cataloged and put in storage.

Among the objects discovered with SCP-3422 were two sheets of paper that had previously used along with SCP-3422. They were vital in discovering how the object is used. See Attachment 3422-1 and -2 for a photocopy.
