Eventually someone will invent the copy/paste pen. You sweep it over text on a piece of paper or a book and it will scan, ocr and store the text in the pen. You can then paste it onto the screen and the text will be inserted, as if you had typed it. You could also use it in autopaste mode. The pen could also be used much like a traditional mouse. You could also use it in reverse. Wave the pen over the screen to collect some text from the sceen, then paste onto a piece of paper, sweeping the pen, and it prints, perhaps with a miniature ink jet, the contents of the pen buffer on paper, or perhaps prints on a strip of sticky tape from an aux printer you can snap off and apply to paper or use it as a label. This function could be done without a pen, just a mouse and strip printer.
