Of course, at the moment I'm looking at BeebScan which is a handheld scanner for the BBC. The same scanner was also used with the Archimedes, see http://chrisacorns.computinghistory.org.uk/32bit_UpgradesH2Z/WE_SCannerIF.html. The scanner is read-only and continually outputs a stream of bytes of the current line in view, when the button is pressed. As this is a generic scanner, used with many other machines at the time, it came with an interface board for the relevant micro.
