The device has portable practical applications as a facsimile and copy machine, with the added feature of interfacing with a host computer to scan information to and print information from the host computer. The device has a cam mechanism (6) which enables either the scanning or printing functions to be disengaged. The device also has rotating arm mechanisms (50) to lend it stability in operation, yet remain relatively unseen and unobstrusive when the device is not in use.
