In Seoul, August 2011, LG came out with a new take on the scanner. The LSM-100 scanner mouse will be on display at the IFA 2011 in Messe Berlin, Berlin and will be the first piece of technology that will use the Swiss developed SLAM Scan® software by Dacuda.
Operating the LSM-100’s scanning function is far more convenient than on conventional scanners. While holding the Smart Scan button on the left side of the mouse, you simply swipe the mouse over the material to be scanned, the scanned image can then be saved in a variety of file types -– PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP, PDF, XLS and DOC –- or dragged and dropped into an application.
The LSM-100 is also equipped with LG’s Optical Character Recognition technology, which converts scanned text into a Microsoft Word document that can then be edited and manipulated by the user. By eliminating the need to retype text from print media onto the screen, Optical Character Reader saves users a great deal of time.
The laser sensor is accurate and durable, and the stylish design lends itself to easy, smooth motions as well as providing an ergonomic, comfortable grip. The mouse is available in Switzerland through Crealogix at an introductory price of CHF228.00, including taxes and excluding shipping.
