Someone tweet or put the above link on FB, this camera will be #1 in a fortnight or less!
There used to be thousands and thousands of such hybrid cameras used in in chain studios, both deparment store and school photos, at least in the U.S. and Canada.
They were essentially a stop gap measure before digital had enough quality to stand on its own. When this gear was changed over to digital only, virtually no one was interested in the hybrid gear which was mostly scrapped. Of course, these were big cameras, needing heavy-duty camera stands, not like you are probably thinking of. But still, there was no demand. One of the long-time manufacturers of long-roll portrait cameras (among numerous other products), PhotoControl Corp., went out of business about this time.
So no, I don't think there would be much interest today. If you wanted to rig something yourself, you could probably mount a tiny digital camera in the flash shoe of a standard film camera.
That's a better idea than you think!

Kinda like hitching a pig and a mule together when you want to plow the field...
It is even still listed on one of Kodak's servers...

To throw two wrenches in things, first, why is this discussion allowed since it contains digital, shouldn't this be a DPUG topic which covers hybrid technology?
Also, what about a film camera that shoots TWO KINDS OF FILM at once, so you could for example shoot a roll of 400TX and also shoot a roll of Portra400 at the same time, now to me that would make more sense for the film market
because you can just shoot Portra 400, and then scan it, and work the grain effect in digital-post to simulate tri-x. Yes, it isn't the "true" thing, but it does the job perfectly fine.

Again not a traditional process... If you print optically this doesn't work.

see, all of a sudden doesn't sound as good.

Well, the way I see it, 35mm and medium format film cameras are just about perfect. You can buy them as simple as can be with no meter, manual focus, and no auto exposure or you can buy them with matrix metering and complete automation. Your choice!
DSLR's have so much stuff on them that they can get confusing all ready. Now they all have video. What's next, a phone?
Why combine digital and film?
