Candy-colored copiers

Panasonic tries to brighten up the workplace

I4U News

Panasonic apparently has an equal-opportunity paintbrush when it comes to equipment. Following the trend of neon appliances in the home, from refrigerators to washing machines , the company is applying its pallette to the color-barren workplace.

Its new line of C3 multi-functional copy machines come in such non-traditional office hues bright red, yellow and blue. We applaud the effort because, as I4U News notes, research shows that colors are generally good for productivity and morale at work.

However, we must say that doesn't hold a candle to Konica Minolta's psychedelic copier-DVD-latte machine --either in function or in hallucinogenic design.
