Design to Innovation Announces World’s First Wireless Scanner Mouse.
Design to Innovation (DTOI) today announced it is launching an Indiegogo campaign to help complete the development of Zcan Wireless, the world’s first wireless scanner mouse. A scanner integrated into a wireless mouse, Zcan represents a new and unique way of scanning documents, books, magazines, and more, by allowing users to easily swipe in a zigzag motion across what they want to capture. The campaign has a funding goal of $30,000USD.
Zcan Wireless can scan the portions of the areas users want, meaning they no longer have to scan the entire page like they would with a traditional scanner. Users can scan anything from a receipt, a recipe to photos and nutritional information printed in a foreign language. Scanned information becomes searchable, meaning users can get rid of their paper versions and box files with backup copies.
“Our Wireless Scanner Mouse is about the same size and weight as a regular mouse,” said Sam Ng, business development director, DTOI. “And with Wi-Fi, users can install it on almost any device including iPad and iPhone!”
