The Holopad appears to provide a preview of the item a player wishes to create. It costs 10000 build grist to create, and seems to become available in the Phernalia Registry for all server/client connections after the second, along with the Intellibeam Laserstation.
Punching a card with the Holopad's code and attaching it to the Jumper Block Extension with a Punch Card Shunt makes the Alchemiter display the item that the inserted card would make as a hologram, and adding the punched card for a Totem Lathe make it display a scannable hologram of the inserted card's resulting totem.
While the Holopad is extremely costly to import normally, Jade managed to cheat her way around it by drawing a ghost image with her Pictionary Modus.
