The “copy and paste” function is so familiar to computer users that it rarely needs explanation. The common function is breaking into the real world with a design by Jayeong Yoon & Seulki Kim called, appropriately, Copy & Paste.
The gadget is a handheld scanner/printer that can take images from one physical place, record them, and transfer them to another physical surface. One button scans and the other prints.
No special paper or equipment is needed to use the handheld scanner/printer. Simply scan any image and recreate it on a flat surface – both actions are performed by moving the gadget slowly over the image and then the blank surface. The clever handheld device was a 2013 red dot design award: design concept winner.
