IRIScan Mouse

 

The IRIScan Mouse lets you scan, recognize text, and save documents as well as operating as a mouse.

A mouse that can scan, read and save documents. Imports documents as text or image into programs. Built-in OCR function. Saves to various formats

Can be unwieldy to scan. Requires a smooth, flat surface. Scanning can be triggered accidentally while mousing

Scanners and mice are more similar than you might expect. Just as a mouse can sweep the breadth and height of an on-screen page, a device like a wand scanner can capture images of physical documents as it sweeps across lines or blocks of text. The...

IRIS IRIScan Mouse Review and Ratings

 

As a mouse it's strictly bare-bones, but the IRIScan scanner/mouse hybrid is handy for students and others who need quick-and-dirty mobile scanning.

Decent basic scanner built into mouse ; Good editing and sending options for scans ; Text recognition for rich-text-compatible apps

Scan source must be absolutely flat and still ; No mousing shortcut buttons ; Slightly lower quality than handheld scanners ; USB cable can get in way of scans

More affordable alternatives ; Software driver not on site (yet) ; Only for Windows

IRIScan’s rodent glides smoothly in use thanks to two Teflon pads on its base. Sandwiched between these you’ll also find the laser sensor and scanner window. Though the mouse itself is ambidextrous, the left-oriented scan button obviously doesn’t...

IRIScan Mouse : IRIS IRIScan Mouse

 

Where once it was enough for a device to satisfy discerning users by performing a single function, now devices need to be multi-functional in order to loosen customers' purse strings and make a sale.

When is a mouse not a mouse? The answer to this riddle could well be when it is a new classification of product that owes its concept to an innovative Belgium company. This company is I.R.I.S. and the product in question is its IRIScan Mouse which, as...

9.5/10. I recommend it.

 

I read a lot and want to preserve, file or index the content of the various reading sources that pass by my desk. With this device, I can "highlight" what I am interested in and save it in my computer. I used to have a scanner but found the whole...

I bought the mouse scanner after I saw it on TV. One of the shopping networks did a story. I had no idea what to expect. My husband thought I'd lost my mind. You, buying tech stuffs after seeing it on TV? So cliche! I received the packaged: the mouse...
