The clever Erascan whiteboard scanner


We've seen pens that record the written word into their internal memories and allow you to send it onto different devices, like the devices from Livescribe and this clever (and slick) recorder pen from last month.

But now you can record the writing, diagrams and crazy scribbles that you've drawn all over that whiteboard too. The Erascan looks a bit like a regular eraser, but as you wipe away your doodles it saves them for you into a built-in memory chip. You can then send all of the data wirelessly to an email address of your choice.

The designers behind the Erascan explain to the guys at the Yanko Design blog:

"The design consists of an LCD screen to show the scanned information during the erasing process. It also displays a simple menu allowing the user to select other functions. Navigation control buttons are located below the LCD screen. The letter 'e' and the light pipe around the device light up to show that Erascan is in power mode."

Although Erascan's pretty clever, it may not seem like it's a handy device for your daily activities, but for teachers and those holding regular meetings with big, confusing whiteboards, it could well change the way they work - maybe!
