About this project
WHAT IS POCKETSCAN?
PocketScan is the world's smallest wireless scanner – barely larger than a business card and super light. PocketScan is compact, smart, and incredibly easy to use. It’s the perfect companion on-the-go for your PC, Mac, iPad, Tablet and iPhone.
Scan anything and any size – even things that don't fit in your old fashioned scanner. Powered by unique and patented real-time image processing software PocketScan allows you to create beautiful scans and turns text and tables magically into editable content.
POCKETSCAN IS FOR YOU
You can use PocketScan anywhere you like in any situation! The applications are as diverse as your ideas!
It's the fastest scanner at hand and always works. As easy as pressing a button, PocketScan starts the scan. Anything you scan is wirelessly transmitted and instantly displayed on the screen. Scanning feels just like painting. Thanks to its unique design and sophisticated illumination, PocketScan works even in bright sunlight or low-light environments to produce consistent, clear, and high quality results.
POCKETSCAN WORKS. SMALL & SMART.

LIMITED COLOR EDITION: So far, we only offer PocketScan in White. YOU can be a designer and help us decide which TWO colors we will choose for PocketScan! If you back the LIMITED COLOR EDITION, we will let you participate in our survey so you can vote on our two further color options. Once the results are in, we'll email you asking which of the colors you would like for your PocketScan. If you don't like our options, you can still get PocketScan in white!

Risks and challenges
Our core technology relies on years of research on robotic algorithms and computer vision. We're a spin-off from ETH Zurich – one of the top engineering schools in Europe – and still retain close relations to academia for further advancing our technology.
In addition to the software capabilities, we have consolidated several years of experience in ramping-up mass production for high quality consumer products. Our team has already worked with leading manufacturing companies to produce the world's first scanning mouse and several hundred thousands of our products are used today in over 140 different countries in 20 different language regions.
With PocketScan, we build on this rich experience and take scanning to the next level. We worked closely over the last few years with leading technology companies and a top tier manufacturer to iterate and perfect a working prototype. We have built the tools for ensuring quality checks and device calibration in the factory and have created a fully functional manufacturing prototype.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
