Erascan Can Scan!

Erascan is a whiteboard eraser that scans the written matter on the board while erasing and saves it onto an inbuilt memory chip. The idea is to keep a digital copy of the drawings or notes handy for future reference. The device is programmed to automatically recognize handwriting, identify emails and web URLs. What’s more, it can share the saved data via email wirelessly!

The designers explain, “The design consists of an LCD screen to show the scanned information during the erasing process. It also displays a simple menu allowing the user to select other functions. Navigation control buttons are located below the LCD screen. The letter “e” and the light pipe around the device light up to show that Erascan is in power mode.”

    Good Job!

  • What an interesting concept! I feel that this could be extremely useful for many businesses, especially those in Architect and Design. So often can some of us jot down an idea or a diagram, erase it, and wish we had it for reference later. These images, however, are simulated. I would like to see this thing in action!

    there are whiteboards that save the whole images in one go….
    technologically there are mouse scanners, but erasing motion will be too fast to save the image with the technology currently available.
