PlanOn’s raison d’être seems to be the continued pursuit of shrinking the world’s office equipment. They already sell printers and scanners that slip easily into a briefcase, or even a deep jacket pocket, but they’ve really gone above and beyond the call of duty with their new SlimScan scanner.
Not only is it designed to scan smaller documents like business cards and receipts, but it also happens to be roughly the same size as them. Scanning is accomplished by dragging the bottom edge of the SlimScan across your document, which then stores the image in the scanner until you sync it with your PC via its miniUSB port. From there you can either leave it as an image, or use the included OCR software to convert it to copyable/importable text. According to the company the SlimScan is already in production and will be available by the end of January for $119.99.
