Pochtofon: MFP per million

New interesting invention pleased us Dagestan scientists.
Yes, all right, he is called ... pochtofon .
I thought they re-invented the fax, but in fact it turned out to be much more interesting.
They already managed to tell about this invention on television, but nobody wrote anything about it at the Habré, we will correct the situation.

Under the cut, you also see a grand exposure from other habr users.


That's what the authors themselves say about it.

In the conditions of a modern highly developed postal services market, the unique unique postal express system “Pochtofon” has been developed, designed to deliver a letter sealed in an envelope within 1 hour from the moment it was sent, while ensuring its confidentiality. Such sending of a letter fully guarantees the safety of the addressee against terrorist acts (sending in the envelope various kinds of viruses, bacteria, and poisonous substances).

A sheet with information is inserted into the post office to send correspondence, where the text is scanned and converted into electronic form. The letter can also be typed using the keyboard pochtofona. Next, the sender dials the address on the keyboard, and the e-mail arrives at the correspondent phone for receiving correspondence. In it, electronic correspondence is automatically printed out, sealed in an envelope with the address and removed from the postal machine installed in the post office. Sealed correspondence arrives to the postman for delivery to the addressee. Shipping costs will not exceed existing postal rates. To send correspondence, you can use a computer connected to the Internet instead of a post office, in which case the text of the letter and the address are typed on a computer keyboard on a special Internet site.

What do we have in essence?

And in fact, we have what can be done now with improvised means.

We take the MFP for 3000 rubles, we take the router for 2000 rubles, we connect, spend the day trying to make a web interface and voila: we can send a scanned letter to any e-mail address. If you spend more time, then you can fasten the recognition.
Recall that the super invention is able to receive messages, we will add an auto-check e-mail and a printout of messages.
One of the things that the system boasts is security , well ... let's add message encryption.

We got over 5000, and you?

And our inventors only spent 900 thousand rubles on the prototype, it was not without grants.
In this case, the total value of the investment project is 45 million rubles.
The project includes two phases:

Cycling flourishes

Whoever does not understand: we invent bicycles that must stand between traditional mail and e-mail, in fact, such a proxy: you write a letter, the letter gets to e-mail, from e-mail it is printed and given to the postal worker.

Why - it is not clear.
Who needs it - too.
Most of all, it is not clear who gives grants and whether there is an investor.


Channel 5 news
Pochtofon website , or rather its prototype ... (try sending a letter to the village from there to your grandfather - I guarantee, I guarantee.)
Innovation to business - a detailed description of 2006

Upd. It turns out that the invention itself is already 4th year, now they have made a prototype.
Upd2. The author himself on YouTube posted old stories about his inventions, including about the mailbox
Upd3. Habrayuzer noma4i and ldv290384e told us that in fact, highly respected scientists have taken the already proven path of the Belarusian inventors of the INTEGRAL monitors: the pochtophone is nothing more than Kyocera MailPrinter MP-WGP with the “pochtophone” label. So here, our inventors apparently want to become a reseller of the device, which was already produced in 1999.
Upd3.Through many days. The inventor responded to comments on youtube .
I quote: "7 images have been patented for the method and apparatus for receiving and sending the POST system. The principle of work. See the sending on the computer graphic, and the receive will have to be able to print letters, postcards and photos; in the envelope without operator access. Money for this app should have been 3 times more than we had. Therefore, as a prototype, Kuoser took a computer, wrote a software program, created a website and showed that, in principle, the system works and allows you to get rid of transport st.
PS I thought where to write - in humor or in gadgets, I stopped at the last one, although the smile from my face still does not disappear.
