Negative scanner - this really made it easy to digitize old 35 mm negatives (bought January 2009, $120). There is a small LCD screen, so you can see a positive image (in real time) of the negatives as you push them through; press a button if you want to digitize it and it scans directly to a SD digital card. It completely bypasses a computer and is much faster and convenient than what I've seen previously. The scan quality might not be very high, but I think the convenience is worth it.
