Printer that actually uses crayons

  [vote for,

With four crayons for CMYK

Able to knock out a either kids style version of old master prints, complete with wobbly clouds and badly drawn faces. Useful for childless couples or something.

Or by actuating the photo-realistic option you can humiliate small children with much better pictures than theirs.."See! Look! This is what a cow really looks like, are you Picasso or what?",

And by changing the print head with the charcoal one, you can make rubbings of cute people (as your gender choice dictates).

NB not wishing to be pinching Voice's buns (in any way, shape or form), please leave them on the other page, link

       Yes but what about white crayons?

       I seem to recall that the ability to mix colors when using crayons is somewhat disappointing.

       I vote for a 3D printer that uses a battery of crayons to print full-colour wax objects.

       The printer would be useful for doing currency, as the amount of wax would make the banknote waterproof, and all the police would have to do is keep an eye on crayon shops to foil counterfeiters. .

       Step 1: Purchase old-school plotter.
Step 2: Buy crayons, adapt to fit into plotter's old pen carousel.
Step 3: Print!
I would be amazed if some crazy person hasn't done this in the past already.
(Later...) Yep, they're out there.

       Solution to the color mixing issue is to have the mechanism hold an entire 64-count box.   

       Maybe Crayola can make this. Include a built-in sharpener.

       + I hope the idea is as good as the title.

       Potential groom: She had one eye, her nose and mouth are each to a different side and her ear is on her forehead!   

       Matchmaker: So you don't like Picasso!

       I would use this to create superior-but- still-obviously- child-drawn pictures for school art projects to make other parents jealous.
