We took a look at a handy page-swiping digitizer back in December in the form of the Portable Handheld Scanner, but now the digital conversion masters at ION have come up with their own tether-free and battery-powered version called the CopyCat Portable Scanner – which will capture and preserve all the photos and text you can throw at it with a swipe.
Storing up to 30,000 pages on your 32GB Micro SD card (not included), the ION CopyCat Portable Scanner captures color images at an impressive 600dpi and is driver-free – enabling simple drag-and-drop transfers to either PC or Mac.
As an added bonus, PC users can make use of the included OCR (or Optical Character Recognition) software too, which can convert text-based scans into editable text in Word, Excel or on the clipboard.
Offering picture-perfect scans through special real-time distortion compensation technology and running on two included AA batteries for over 200 pages, the ION CopyCat Portable Scanner is available now over at Firebox.com for $127 | £80 | €96.
