Another Derek idea that someone else created faster than I: digital cameras with built-in wireless networking. My theory, imagined around 4 years ago, was actually a CompactFlash card with Wi-Fi SMB capability -- your camera takes the picture, and saves it to the card. The card acts as cache memory; after the photo is 'saved', the card then wirelessly transmits the picture to a shared folder on a networked computer. Configuration data is saved as a textfile on the card itself, therefore requiring no special software whatsoever other than text and photo editors that everyone should already have. The Nikon linked above, however, requires their special software, because that's always the easiest way to do things, right?
