A ouija board modified by the addition of a little round hollow
box with a pointer protruding from it. The hollow box is
a miniature cabinet that is believed to accumulate psychic force
as it moves under the fingers over a polished board printed
with the alphabet.
The term autoscope has been given to such devices as the
ouija board, planchette, and additor, that are believed to facilitate
the production of messages from an unknown intelligent
source, at times the subconscious mind, at other times from discarnate
spirits of the dead. (See also Automatic Writing)
