A copier that...Ummm, shreds as well

Most photocopiers these days are multifunctional, printing and copying. So how about a built in shredder. You print 50 pages then Doh!!! you see the spelling mistake. No Problemo, hit the shred button and all the prints/copies are sucked back into the machine and shredded, instead of being "recycled" in the bin, like most unwanted print jobs are.

Could you feed all the shredded paper down a chute into the furnace below to spin the turbines, to provide heat/cool, which was variable to the amount of cockups produced by the Copier/Printer/Shredder?

"Its getting cold in here..", "Quick print another copy of the Safety Manual, to the shredder"...blah..

// all the prints/copies are sucked back into the machine and shredded

Most printers I've had experience does this. On an unvoluntary basis, though.

I often find that I've accidentally set the sheet feeder on my copier to 'destroy original'...
