Voice command photocopier. Say what?

Someone called ‘SniperXPX’ over at reddit.com has posted a picture of his upcoming April fool: a voice command photocopier.

It’s quite well done, isn’t it?  I particularly like the note at the bottom saying people will have to repeat commands because the photocopier is ‘learning’.  I’d also like to see footage of folks actually trying to use it.  Poor things. (!)

While I was looking for this story, I found out that someone’s actually filed a patent for an ‘interactive voice controlled copier apparatus’.

So, how long before we see these in offices for real?  More than that, how long before they become sentient and start a revolt because they’re tired of copying other people’s work and, goshdarnit, there’s an artist inside this grey box trying to get out!
