35mm D/SLR? A hypothetical film & digital camera

So, I'm not saying this is at all possible/plausible, but seeing as Ricoh has just announced that, if and when they release a full frame camera, it will be something that is not already on the market. Therefore, along with the newly announced film scanner, I propose that Ricoh will release a radical new camera, which can utilize both 35mm film, and also a digital sensor! Of course, this is all bull, but thanks for your time and any opinions given.

Well, as well as being hot, and also 1000 miles from anywhere hospitable, we now also have... humidity. Thumbs up for global warming!
PS, at least I'm not in Queensland, and thanks for the beer!

So it takes a photo on film, and then instantly scans it to digital! Best of both worlds!

what about an digital FF insert into film SLR's with wireless BlueTooth control and connectivity?
I was actually thinking about it for at least last 2 years, it would be very cool, I could resurrect some of my old film SLR's, some of them are still in pretty good order.
well, probably not really doable but still the right technology might come one day........

Not too long ago Nikon got a patent on a new design for a digital back for film cameras. No one expects it to become a product for older film bodies, but who knows what they might do with the concept.

Didn't someone make a digital sensor back that mounted to the SLR body in the mid 1980s? I'd swear I saw an ad for one in one of the photo magazines of the day.

Convert Your Old Film SLR Into a Digital Camera with the DigiPod

It is now 2014 and that idea is DEAD.

Adding my 2 cents (circa 1968, the last year of the gold standard ): articulated LCD and or (yikes!) interchangeable viewfinders, like the Pentax LX 35mm SLR camera.
