“Do you copy and paste stuff a lot when you’re on the computer? It simplifies a lot of tasks and doesn’t take more than few seconds to do if you’re familiar with the usual shortcuts. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could somehow do the same in real life?
That’s what the folks behind the Copy & Paste tool are envisioning with their concept design. It looks like one of those scanning guns that cashiers use to scan the code on the stuff that you’re buying. Only this time, you’re supposed to move the device over whatever it is you want to copy and paste.
Pushing the button on the underside activates the scanner, while the button on top activates the printer. The handy device is, effectively, a scanner and printer that can print on any surface.”
