Omoidori / Album scanner for iPhone


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Until now, scanning your precious photographs from an old photo album was a difficult task, because the plastic cover sheets would create light reflections and trying to remove your photographs from the sticky album pages would damage them. The Omoidori is a completely new photo album scanner with the iPhone as its capture engine. Using its unique technology, you can easily scan your photographs without having to remove them from the photo album and without any light reflections. The product design aims to appeal to a wide range of generations, from teenagers to the elderly generation. "Your one and only album in the palm of your hands."
