new invention idea

I was thinking this invention might be pretty cool:

A scanner/copier with a built in hard drive, LCD screen, and CD/DVD burner.

That way if you are in a hurry to archive documents, receipts, etc, just scan it, save it to the built in hard drive, and then later burn it onto CD/DVD, or maybe save to USB memory stick or something.

This would eliminate the need to have a PC hook-up, which would be slow unless you have USB 2.0 or fire wire.

This could really reduce clutter in the home office.

What do you guys think?

that would be a great invention.

very much like cd copiers that don't need computer but your idea is more convenient and usable for wide range of people.

yup ... but it would already almost be a puter by itself, right ? :wink:

yeah it's almost a computer.. but you save the hassle of doing lots of steps to accomplish a particular thing.

it's a real time saver...

Thanks for the feedback so far. The reason I'm so stuck on this idea is because I have *so many* pieces of mail / ads / miscellaneous papers laying around, and it's really tedious to scan and archive.

I think a scanning solution like this would really help those people who like to save their documents but hate the clutter get organized.

I wonder if I could get a group of techies to work on this idea, patent it, and market it :P
