With Scanbox, Transform Your Smartphone Into A Portable Scanner

Presently, when a person asks us to scan and mail them a document, what we send him/her is a photograph of the document via our phone, isn't it? But most of the times the image turns out badly lit or blurred. This problem can now be disposed off cheaply with Scanbox, a small box (frame size 12.2 x 12.2 x 9.05-inch) with a hole at top from where our smartphones can take photographs. Not only does it make scanning a lot more easier, but also the small size makes it a great portable device.


The Scanbox is held together by powerful neodymium magnets, which make sure that it doesn’t bend under the weight of your smartphone. The box, says the creator Bosua, is customized for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Get more details of this Scanbox at Kickstarter. With the funding exceeding the required cost, it's ensured that Scanbox will see the light of the day.
