Worlds Lightest Scanner

If the Guinness Book of Records certified it, it must be true. Canadian-based Planon Systems Solutions today at CeBIT showed off the “world’s lightest scanner,” the wireless Docupen R700, weighing in at under 60 grams (about the weight of, well, a pen). The flyweight device can scan an entire standard A4 page in one go in about four seconds at a resolution of either 100 or 200dpi. The ScanSoft PaperPort bundled software includes OCR functionality to convert scanned text into an editable format. It connects to a PC to charge, and will set you back about US$200, making this another pen you really can’t afford to lose.
