Every once in a while, a friend or neighbor, asks to use my scanner. For those of you who don’t know what a scanner is, here is an easy explanation.
Wikipedia says, “A scanner is a device that analyzes the surface of an image, printed text or an object and converts it into a two-dimensional digital image. Scanners come in different shapes and sizes depending on the intended use. The most common scanner for home and offices today is the flatbed scanner.”
I don’t mind them using my scanner when they have to email a digital file to someone. What bothers me, is that I have to get dressed, and/or straighten up, before they enter my apartment. I don’t want them to see how messy I can be.
Those days may be gone forever once the Pup becomes available. It’s currently on Indiegogo, a crowd-funding site. It should be ready for retail in a few weeks. It’s a tiny hand-held scanner that is capable of accomplishing all kinds of jobs. I can let neighbors take the Pup home with them, scan all they want, and then return it to me.
For $169, I get to keep my privacy.
