Carry a Scanner in Your Wallet

on March 8, 2012 1:00 pm

The SlimScan SS100 from PlanOn is a receipt scanner that’s small enough to fit in a credit card slot in your wallet.  This 300 dpi, 24-bit color scanner is only 2.0″ X 3.1″ X 0.12″, and it can scan JPG images 2.75″ wide X up to 36″ long.  It’s great for scanning business receipts for your expense report as you collect them or for scanning business cards and product labels.  It comes with its own receipt management software, and it is compatible with Outlook, Word, Excel, and other databases.  The SlimScan SS100 has on-board memory to store up to 600 images, and you can transfer data to your computer as easily as transferring from a memory stick.  It has a rechargeable lithium polymer battery.  It works with Windows Vista, XP, and Win7 computers, only.  It’s $139.99 from PlanOn; it’s also available at leading retailers.

    Neat enough, I guess, that the tech has progressed this far, but I
    just use my Android’s camera and .pdf on the fly.

    CamScanner for Android is a great scanning app (utilizes the camera of course)

    Yep, I had just the same idea.

    Wonderful device but too late on the market.

    I’m using Evernote, I just take a picture of a receipt (or a book page) and upload it in Evernote.
    Ever so simple :-)

    Yeah, I use my phone camera to snap everything from receipts to menus to newspaper articles to namecards. 5 years ago I would have loved something like this, but now my phone does it all.

    Agree with the others here – waste of time, use your smartphone via a scanner or note app.

    less to carry, quicker and almost as good.
