Fund This: PocketScan Mobile Scanner For On-the-Go Scanning

PocketScan

Most people turn to their phone camera when they need to get a copy of something when they’re out of the house. It doesn’t give the same results as a scanner would, obviously, but it gets the job done. However, you’ll be putting your camera away soon though because the PocketScan Mobile Scanner is here and it was made for one thing, and one thing only: to scan documents and pictures when you’re away from home or out of the office.

It’s sleek, it’s small, and it’s compatible with Windows and OSX computers and iOS tablets. PocketScan provides instant feedback while it’s scanning and can scan up to 400dpi. It also has optical character recognition (OCR) so you can extract text from documents so you can edit them later on a word processor.

CES 2014: The iSense is a 3D Scanner for the iPad

iSense

 

Now you can do more with your iPad with the iSense. It’s a 3D scanner for the iPad by 3D Systems which will be launching later this year. It was designed with convenience in mind, as users simply have to snap the device onto their iPads and it’ll be good to go. The iSense will be compatible with apps that are made for Occipital’s Structure Sensor and is ideal for applications in physical photography.

Rajeev Kulkarni of Consumer Products explains: “iSense has the most diversity in its class for scan size and can capture everything from a delicious cupcake to a full body selfie, processing in seconds to a 3D printable, and comes with powerful, intuitive software that lets the user crop and enhance with easy and automated tools.”

On usage, he adds: “Users simply attach the iSense to an iPad, and they can literally walk around and scan entire objects or environments obtaining a photorealistic copy of the real thing. iSense is powered by the same software as 3DS’ popular Sense scanner.”

The 3D Systems iSense will be priced at $500.
