If you have lots of important documents, letters or recipes you’d like to preserve, or perhaps large books or newspaper clippings that a flatbed scanner can’t accommodate – this flexible, go anywhere cordless scanner would be ideal. Called the Portable Handheld Scanner, it captures just about any document of up to 8.5″ x 50″ in size to an inserted MicroSD memory card for later retrieval on your computer (see video).
Scanning your passport in as little as 5 seconds, the Portable Handheld Scanner features a sensitive color image sensor that captures images as JPEG files at either a high 600dpi or standard 300dpi resolution.
Supporting high-capacity MicroSD cards of up to 32GB for large scanning jobs, the Portable Handheld Scanner can download your images to your computer over an included USB cable when you’re done and also features a built-in display to show you the selected resolution, memory status and remaining battery life.
With two included AA batteries providing up to 180 scans, the Portable Handheld Scanner works with Windows 7/Vista/XP and Mac, measures 10″ long x 1.25″ wide x 1″ high, weighs a tiny 7.5oz and is available now from Hammacher Schlemmer for $119.95.
