Introduced in 1959, the Xerox 914 was the first commercially available paper copier. This completely changed the document copying industry and was shown on national television in a live demo. So named because it could print originals up to 9×14, the 914 was so successful, the company that created it changed it’s name once the word Xerox was associated with copying. From there, the Xerox Corporation went on to pioneer a lot of other tech that changed the world, including the modern GUI, desktop copiers, and some of the earliest faxing technology.
