Doing away with the traditional norms of a bulky scanner is the svelte scanU. This pocket-sized gadget is inherently made up of three segments: the screen, the power unit and the storage. The display screen comprises of a three-layer roll out scanning bed, where the upper and bottom layers are OLED screens (providing illumination) and the central layer features capacitive and photo sensors that capture the scanned data.
You will find a USB interface on both the rechargeable battery and the Flash based memory unit. This makes charging or transferring data quite simple and easy. Apparently you can even use it to scan and play aloud books. Next time your kid pesters you for a bedtime story, just slip the scanU into the Peter Pan book and let it tell the tale!
