  • Immediately translate and edit in multiple applications
  • Transmit digitized data to Mac/Win/iPhone/Android phone

PenPower specializes in the development of innovative devices with built-in smart human-machine interface technologies. With the success of Chinese handwriting recognition, PenPower built its name in the field and was able to invest more resources in other automatic recognition technologies such as voice recognition, optical character recognition and business card recognition.

Nowadays, everyone has a smart phone. We considered developing a cutting edge pen scanner which can work perfectly with smart phones. 

There could be many situations in which we may need a pen scanner...... 

  • Sitting in a Japanese Restaurant but cannot understand the menu...
  • Reading a professional book…
  • Extracting highlighted quotes from the books you read…
  • Learning Mandarin for doing business in the emerging market…
  • Learning Spanish or French for communicating with friends…

With this scanner, users can extract printed sentences and convert them into texts on the smart phone. By integrating with translation software, WorldPenScan X can turn your smart phone into an electronic translator.

Bluetooth wireless connection instantly ready when powered on.

  • WorldPenScan X adopts the Bluetooth 4.0 - BLE technology to facilitate the data transmission to most newly launched mobile devices. 
  • The scanned result can be immediately digitized into texts and transmitted to Win/Mac via USB port. 

Recognize multiple languages, barcodes and bank fonts.

  • Support Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong), English, Japanese, Korean, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Vietnamese and other languages on mobile devices.
  • Not only support multiple languages, but also recognize barcodes and bank fonts such as OCR-A, OCR-B, MICR on PCs.

Immediately translate and edit in multiple applications.

  • Scan and translate sentences without typing any word. Easy to check vocabulary, pronunciation, extended queries in the dictionaries.
  • Directly edit scanned data in MS office applications, E-mail and browsers.

Risks and challenges

We have been working on this technology and taken many products to market for several years. We know that there are always a myriad of obstacles while designing and manufacturing a new product. During the developing process, we have assessed the risks and challenges and already passed a lot of tough tests, yet many challenges remain. More researches are required to optimize our new product.

KickStarter is a perfect platform for us testing the market. This is our first project on Kickstarter. We would like to know how tech-lovers think about our product. We need your feedback so that we can improve our software and hardware and then provide a perfect product for you. We also need your help to share this project with your friends.
