"Its a very capable printer, I thought for a sec that the 3D scanner as a more of a gimmick , but in fact , its very handy and useful. I also though it could print in 3D, Bummer"
I want one just to play with the 3D scanner :D
That's pretty silly. The niche for this market must be microscopic.
Hmm ok, I could see the 3D scanner being useful for animators and graphics designers to scan an actual object that they can then manipulate. Plus @ $400 the price is not too bad either. Too bad the toner for it will probably be insanely priced.
Wow, printers have come a LONG way since i got my all-in-one back in the day. The apps for this thing are really cool. I could see the 3d camera being useful but I wouldn't pay extra to get it I guess. Maybe in a year these things will be more mainstream and I'll pick one up to replace my aging one.
Now you're just mashing it!
It's not a 3D scanner. It's just a 2D camera that takes plain old-fashioned 2D images, like any other camera. Why they call it a 3D scanner is beyond comprehension. It's terribly misleading. I guess it's some kind of marketing trick, but one that's going to backfire on HP as soon as all the reporters who have written about it realize they've been duped.
