Probably you’ve already created some habits with the most common PC mice like clicking, spinning the wheel, etc. But this new mouse shows one more function – function: scanning. With this gadget you can make instant digital copies of many of your documents – artwork, photos, business cards, articles, maps and more all with your mouse. Similar to a regular mouse, Scanner Mouse allows you to click, scroll and point, but it has space-saving scanner built in a device smaller than a human’s palm. To activate the scanner, you have to push the Smart Scan button, slide Scanner Mouse over your document in any pattern, and watch the image appearing in high resolution on your screen. It is able to scan images as large as 16.5″ x 11.7″ (inches) and provides resolution of 320 dpi.

The software of the mouse allows you to edit properties of the scanned image, such as brightness, contrast, orientation, size, and zoom level and also you can erase what you don’t need or dislike. If there is some text on the image, the software offers also an OCR technology that converts scanned text into available for editing in word-processing programs. When you’re ready, you can save the images, send through e-mail, or upload them to the social websites.
