NEC

It seems hard to believe that, well into the 21st century, so many offices still must keep fax machines to do business. But at least some manufacturers are trying to evolve their Paleolithic technology, whether by going mobile or making lattes. (A little perfume never hurts either.)

NEC is taking an even more ambitious route that, surprisingly, involves the most analog form of communication of all: handwriting. The SP-NA640 will scan the worst of your chicken scratchings or doodlings and send them to any mobile phone as an image document, even in color, according to Akihabara News. With such great minds at work, we wonder if someone will invent some software that will make doctors' writing legible.
