WorldPenScan X – Replacing Scanners
Although, there is a huge migration that is taking place from computers to mobile but then there are still a few tasks which remain limited to computers itself which is probably due to lack of technology or idea itself.
One such task is scanning!
No matter what you do; you always require the big daddy a.k.a computer and how can we forget the huge scanners to scan anything!
Well that scenario is soon about to change with the invention of PenPower’s – WorldPenScan X!!!
Brief idea about WorldPenScan X
WorldPenScan X is a device that, in collaboration with iOS and Android devices helps in digitalizing, translating and scanning texts. It does that by connecting to the Smartphones with the help of Bluetooth Low Energy and recognizes multiple languages as well.
With the help of WorldPenScan X one can access or edit almost any form of data on either iOS, Android, Windows or Mac installed systems.
In other words, WorldPenScan X as the name itself suggests acts like a pen and looks like a marker which operates as a scanner and a translator for devices like iPhone/Android phone, iPad, tablets & Mac/Win. You can scan any kind of document while moving and if required translate it instantly.
WorldPenScan X is a prodigy of PenPower Technology Limited based in USA and was founded in 1991. The company specializes in development of unique and innovative devices which hold built-in features like smart human-machine interface technologies.
Apart from WorldPenScan X, the company has successfully manufactured many other products like Handwriting Applications, Voice Applications, Business Card Management, Document Management, Graphic Design, Mobile Accessories, & many more…
Coming back to their latest invention, the primary reason for developing such a scanner was because as we all know that almost everyone uses a Smartphone & such a cutting edge technology could come off in great use to reduce the pressure on computers, successfully help the transformation to mobile and lastly to make scanning a hassle free task!
WorldPenScan X comes with a rechargeable battery, USB / Bluetooth 4.0, a scanning speed of 10 cm/sec, character size of 6 x 22 pt and a transmission distance of 1 meter.
To be able to use this device; all you need is any version of Windows which is either XP or above with a USB port, Mac OS X 10.6.8 or above and a USB port, Android 4.3 or higher versions with a minimum 100mb of free internal storage and lastly, iOS 7 or higher version iPhone’s.
There are many reasons when a pen scanner can be of great use to many and the beauty is that due to its compact and portable outlook it is not limited to one specific location, home and/or office.
It can simply be used by anyone, everyone, anywhere and everywhere. You could be sitting in a restaurant and scanning the menu to understand their language, extracting highlighted quotes from a book that you’re reading or for that matter convert an overseas business report into a digital copy in minutes and translate the report in the required language.
The digital pen is primarily used for scanning and translating by just moving it over the content you wish to scan. Transmissions and edits happen instantly without many hassles.
You don’t have to turn on the Bluetooth wireless connection everytime and it automatically happens when the device is powered on.
Apart from that, the device recognizes and understands multiple languages, barcodes and bank fonts.
Some of the languages that it supports on a mobile phone are simplified and traditional Chinese, Japanese, English, Korean, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, and many more; whereas, on a computer WorldPenScan X supports nearly 200 different languages.
You can also transfer data to Mac/Win/iPhone/Android phone within no time and the same can be edited in MS office applications, email and/or browsers.
With the help of the scanner, you can convert printed sentences into texts on the Smartphone.
Now obviously there are many other built-in cameras for scanning which may make you think why go for this one and not them but with WorldPenScan X you can scan only the texts you need by passing the irrelevant content or the whole page for that matter. Besides that, unlike the former you don’t need to perform multiple steps to scan. And most importantly, the quality of the image solely depends on the camera’s megapixels and the ambience you are in but here it doesn’t matter!
Due to the Bluetooth Low Energy it uses to perform the transmission of date, you do not require any extra setup to pair the device with the Smartphone or computer and the same can also be done with the help of a USB port too.
