Text editor with scrolls

  [vote for,

In a ground-breaking way* NMRM Corp presents the two scrolls and plastic sheet text editor.

One scroll goes above the pc screen, and one below it. The scrolls hold about 50m of transparent film.

By dint of a camera and OCR software, the rollers synchronize with the text as you edit the document.

The plastic film allows you to tippex bits out and the small pockets on the film are for post-it notes.

After the document is finally edited to your satisfaction, take out the film and wash off the tippex, and sling the notes away.

* A freak gust of wind blew the cast iron prototype out of a 5th window storey onto the garden. You can't get more ground breaking than that. The petunias may never be the same again.

       I tried getting used to Linux Mint for a bit. But I’m too old of a Windows dog to try and learn new tricks I guess.

       I gave up MS Word at home over a decade ago and once had to work on a Word doc in Open Office. I copied an office document for the styles, deleted all and removed history to start a fresh document and then sent it home via email. The early import to Open Office revealed not only a retained history of the current company but the previous one as well including their company logo. Quite shocking.
