Cool Gadget Alert: IRIScan Book 2 – I Don’t Leave Home Without ItMar 2nd, 2012 | By Clout and About | Category: Featured
First of all, true confessions. I’ve secretly ripped off some cool recipes or articles while waiting for my hair treatment to be done. More than once but probably not more than one hand. I felt guilty the few times I’ve had to do that. Or sometimes (same fave salon), I’m into a very interesting story on Vanity Fair and they tell me it’s time for a shampoo. They’re very efficient in this place!
Problem and occasional dilemma solved! I found my magic wand that fits nicely in my purse and I can scan anything I want ~ anywhere I am. And I get quality images to boot! Say hi to my IRIScan Book 2 gizmo!
The IRIScan Book 2 is smaller than my flat iron. It comes with a 2GB mini SD card. It’s simple to use ~ you slide, it scans. You can see how handy and portable it is in the image above next to my magazine. It’s not bulky at all. And the images are clear! See?
You do not get this quality when you take a picture with your phone OR a scanner.
All I did was slide the scanner (I like to call it my ‘wand’) over the image and then hook up the scanner to my computer via a USB cord and voila! You also have the option of transferring files to your phone or computer via the memory card that’s included in the package. The IRIScan Book 2 Executive (below) allows you to transfer files via Bluetooth. You have a choice of capturing images in black and white or in color. You also have the luxury of saving documents to PDF format.
This is great for travelers and people on the go. Imagine yourself on the plane and scanning everything you want to buy from the SkyMall magazine you just read. Okay ~ maybe not. In reality, I can think of so many people who might find this a must have tool. I know I have it in my handbag these days and it has come in handy many times. Away from my fax machine? No problem! I’ve signed forms and scanned them and sent the file by email. I like the simple things in life! And these days ~ portable, mobile, small form factors ~ you gotta love it!
IRIScan Book 2 is running a $20 Mail-in-Rebate at the following retailers:
