  • The Eora 3D Scanner Can Capture The Very Soul Of An Object

    The Eora 3D Scanner Can Capture The Very Soul Of An Object

    Primitive cultures like my family believe that 3D scanning steals the essence of a person which is why we do not allow binocular vision in my home. The Eora 3D scanner, however, is allowed because it takes 3D scans using a device that is surprisingly simple yet exceedingly complex and only uses one camera. Created by Rahul Koduri and Asfand Khan of Sydney, Australia the project came about… Read More

    Neat Launches NeatCloud And NeatMobile, Two New Document Storage Services

    I’ve had a love affair with Neat scanners for a while now and the company has just updated their roster with two new cloud offerings, the aptly-named NeatCloud and a mobile scanning system called NeatMobile. For those not in the know, Neat is essentially a scanner for receipts, documents, and business cards. It’s surprisingly fast and efficient and has allowed me, personally, to… Read More

    With 12M+ Downloads, Scan Launches Scan-to-gram, A New Way To Follow People On Instagram

    Three guys from Provo, Utah set out on a mission to make QR codes, those boring pixellated, black-and-white squares come alive — in other words, to extend their functionality by turning them into realworld “like,” “follow,” and “buy” buttons. And it’s been working. In February, Scan announced a seed funding round from Shervin Pishevar, Google… Read More

    Doxie Go: Wireless Scanner (mostly) Cuts the Cord

    Doxie, the cute but functional document scanner, last made waves with its ability to send scanned items to Evernote, Dropbox, or your iPhone. That functionality was handy, but you still needed to dig out your Doxie scanner, attach it your PC or Mac, and then perform the scan. Doxie’s cutting the cord today with Doxie Go: a cordless self-contained scanner that saves scans to its… Read More

  • Review: NeatDesk Scanner For Mac

    Review: NeatDesk Scanner For Mac

    This thing has been sitting on my desk for most of the summer, like a sad-eyed puppy. It wanted me to review it, but like a petulant, spoiled child, I ignored it. “You’re just a scanner,” I said. “Who cares?” “You’ll care eventually,” said the NeatDesk For Mac. “And when you do, I may not be there for you.” Read More

  • Canon announces two new CanoScan LiDE scanners

    In the market for a scanner? Canon just announced they have two new scanners in their Canoscan LiDE product line coming out later this year. Read More

  • Review: Doxie document scanner

    This is a great scanner for occasional scanning of single pages. It doesn’t have an auto document feeder, so you’re not going to use it for large scanning jobs. You’ll use it to scan your W-2, or old family photos, or that newspaper clipping your mom saved from when you did something famous in your home town. For $129 it provides a good deal of functionality, including… Read More

  • Review: ScanSnap S1300 portable scanner

    Short Version: Tax season is upon us, friends, and wouldn’t those 1099s and W2s floating hither and yon would be much more accessible if they were nestled deep inside a searchable PDF? Sure. That’s why Fujitsu invented the $295 ScanSnap S1300. Read More

  • Doxie: the amazing scanner for documents

    I have an ancient — and gigantic — Umax scanner I’ve been hanging onto for what feels like eternity for the two or three times every year when I need to scan something. My scanner is big, and bulky, and has a power brick about the size of Idaho. It’s not very convenient to use. Sure, I could replace it with something else, but really I scan so infrequently that… Read More
