As much as we love the convenience of digital cameras, the PrintBrush 4x6 device takes it to a whole new level. It essentially melds together a printer and digital camera into one gadget so that the user can take a photo and then print it off pretty much instantaneously.

To use the PrintBrush 4x6 device, you simply swipe it on almost any type of surface and it essentially 'brushes' the image onto it. It does this with the help of laser beams, optical sensors and ink that can produce about 16 million different shades.

Designed by Swedish Engineer Alex Breton for his company PrintDreams, the PrintBrush 4x6 device may seem like a concept, but it might be hitting the market late 2011 or early 2012. Stats for Printer-Camera Hybrids Trending: Older & Chilly
