DocuPen pen scanner


Where was this when I was in school? Can you imagine having a pen sized scanner? Just glide the "pen" over the page and it will scan it into memory, then connect it to your laptop or computer and it uploads the page. The DocuPen RC800 color handheld scanner, by Planon, can store up to 100 pages of scanned text.

While portable scanners aren't new, the speed of the DocuPen RC800 -- scans a full page of text and graphics in four to six seconds -- puts it in a class by itself.

After a few tries, I found I had mastered it; and it scans images as well as text, plus business cards, pretty much anything you want. The 800 version will set you back $299, but there are cheaper versions available, even a Recertified R700 for $99, which makes it afforable for students.


Excuse me while I go see if I can scan some more stuff.
