Cool Tool: Easily Scan your Photos using a Mouse.

The title pretty much says it all. Using LG's new LMS-100 mouse scanner you are able to scan pictures by depressing a button and swiping across an image with a few quick flicks of the wrist. You can save PNG, JPEG, TIFF, and PDF and the device also features Optical Character Recognition that converts text from said images into an editable Word document. The potential convenience of this mouse is enough to make me want to get my hands on one for testing... hint hint LG.

I'm presuming it doesn't offer the kind of output quality a professional would require, but for the average consumer, I have no doubt this is the future.

I'm quite curious as to what resolutions it can actually scans at.

Looks great from the LG video there... untill then end where there wire popped into the equation :(

what I am wondering is why they are using way outdated software to show off a new product in the first video. I would think LG would be past windows XP and Office 2003

Truth is many people still use Windows XP. Including myself. It has been out for a while and has the most familiarity among users. Also, for custom software for IT professionals and companies, XP is usually used.

I don't care how much it costs. I want one. (Self confessed Techno-fashion-victum.)

Not a word about it anywhere on LG web site. That's strange, no?

Not for something being previewed at a conference (often these things are simply concepts if I'm not mistaken) I would think. I'm sure they'll have loads of information when the time comes for it to be sold.

Considering I used a hand scanner from LG in the late 80s, this is not that revolutionary.
OK, the hand scanner was bigger and only did B/W in low res, but its 22 years ago.

Shame they stuck a cord on it at the end. Surely it works wirelessly when scanning?

The battery life would probably be horrid.
