This cuts out all of that.
At a $15 pledge you will get a Scanbox, (which is delivering in July!). The creators made this lightweight, so it's super portable and shipping is very inexpensive. The $25 Scanbox Plus comes with LED lights for poorly lit conditions (such as any room in my house). And if you want a lot of these, you can get 50 X Scanbox Plus for $1150. I'd love to see a personal scanner on every desk at work eliminating the lines in the copy rooms.
