Scan Marker, Scan Text Directly Into Your Computer
Ever wanted to scan text from a book or newspaper and have it appear directly onto your computer? Now, you can…soon, sometime. Ippinka is a group of developers who have some fabulous ideas, and this is another one of them. The uses for this device vary and are wide ranging, and I foresee a market for this device.

The pen tip is clear and relatively slim, allowing the user to see what he/she is scanning.”
The results look like this:
For more information from the developer, go to their website. This is a company with vision, let’s just hope they can turn their visions into reality, as I have yet to see many of their ideas come to market. One can always hope.
