This pen shaped scanner allows you to conveniently and quickly capture text on a page by simply hovering the pen over the document.
Integrated in to the pen is a 5 megapixel camera capable of capturing images at a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. Although the laser guide looks a little fake on the image below, we actually hear that the pen does this to some extent. What you do is hold the pen a few inches above the page, push the scan button half way to enable the laser guide, match up the area you want to scan and then push the button all the way to capture the shot.
As you push the button the final amount, the camera quickly focuses and then captures an image which is stored inside the pens memory. The pen has 1GB of storage which can store about 1000 files in JPEG format. It also has a microphone built in that can capture audio in WAV format.
To copy files from the pen to PC/Laptop, you connect it up to the said device with a USB cable.
The battery takes about 1 hour to charge and is good for capturing up to 300 pages of text. Charging is also done by the USB port on the pen.
The pen sized scanner is available now at Hammacher.
