Kool Tools: Doxie Flip flatbed scanner
Apparent Corp.'s Doxie Flip is a flatbed scanner with a difference. It's a battery-powered, cordless scanner that flips over to capture photos, memories, creative ideas, and notebooks.
The Doxie flip is cordless and uses battery power and flash memory. It captures images with the press of a single green button without the need for a computer.
The Doxie Flip features a transparent scanning window that lets you see through to your original as you scan. With its glass 4 x 6-inch (A6) scanning surface, you can scan most any object, from old photo albums to newspaper clippings, coins, stamps, clippings from books, and everything else.
For large originals, Doxie's patented AutoStitch feature (due this December with a free software update) takes multiple, overlapping scans and stitches them together to create one big original. The Doxie Flip also boasts a quick release removable lid, so you can place it directly on old photo albums, fragile originals, and other objects that are otherwise difficult to scan.
Doxie's organization software — compatible with Mac OS X and Windows — is also included with Doxie Flip - import, organize, adjust, and share to local apps and the cloud. You can send your scans directly to Dropbox, Evernote, and other services. Doxie's scans are also easily uploaded to Facebook and Ancestry.com .
The lightweight and mobile design, cordless operation, removable lid, archival photo quality, and transparent scanning window make it easy to capture ideas and memories. Scans are stored to Doxie's included SD flash memory card.
The Doxie Flip is available for US$149. For more info go to www.getdoxi.com .
