If it’s not on the web it doesn’t exist. Well that’s what we’ve heard. Thankfully it’s a load of codswallop because plenty of pages exist outside the pixellated confines of your computer. But not for long because the amazing CopyCat Handheld Scanner is here to digitise anything and everything you fancy.
This ingenious battery-operated device allows you to capture books, magazine pages, photos, text and virtually any document you can think of in a matter of seconds, wherever you may roam. Simply sweep it across the required pages and presto, the high res images are written onto micro SD card (up to 32GB), ready for idiot-proof USB drag-and-drop transfer to PC or Mac.
Capable of storing more than 30,000 pages, the CopyCat scans colour images at an impressive 600 dpi, and comes with nifty OCR software that converts text images into editable text in Word, Clipboard or Excel.*
Stores photos on microSD card
Clear LCD screen
Transfer to computer via USB
Just think, armed with a CopyCat you can scan images from magazines in the dentist’s waiting room, scan reams of the nearest swot’s homework, copy photos on the fly and even store newspaper pages for subsequent study. (We’re thinking political comment, not Page 3. Honest).
Apparently this compact page muncher utilises real-time distortion compensation and capture-optimising feedback for great scans. Whatever. All we know is the in-depth Girls Aloud swimwear feature in last month’s Girl Band Weekly is now safely digitised and stored in our ‘important cultural icons’ file.
A great gizmo for anyone drowning in paperwork, the CopyCat is guaranteed to come in handy in all kinds of scenario, serious or frivolous. Scantastic!
