Sony Files Patent For Touchscreen Printer With Microsoft Surface Tech

Sony got scooped on not one, but two patents today. I now present to you the touchscreen printer.  It’s best described as a Microsoft Surface with a printer built-in.  Just place the camera on the printer’s touchscreen and the photos are wirelessly downloaded.  The touchscreen allows for editing and modifying of the photos, such as cropping or color changing.  When finished, hit print and out of the side emerges the photo.  It’s not clear why the printer features a foldable design, but it might be safe to assume it expands the touchscreen surface area or allows for scanning.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
