Free Idea # 247 - Durable clockwork photocopier

Invent a durable clockwork photocopier that could be used by
disaster relief teams in areas where regular power supplies are
unavailable. This almost indestructible 'Hummer among photocopiers'
would be water and dust resistant, and capable of operating in
extreme cold, heat, and humidity. Dissemination of low-tech
paper-based information in the precious first few hours and days
after a major disaster would enhance co-ordination of the relief
effort and, ultimately, save lives.
