Scan Bug / Portable Scanner

Scan Bug
Scan Bug

Vision is the major channel for most persons' perceptions. Record relevant images and reading materials becomes an important issue for human communication and cultural preservations. The existing devices, such as cameras or desktop scanners, provide some solutions for keeping images. However, the scales of the objects hinder those equipment's operations for acquiring precise images. The design is aimed to propose a portable innovative scanning device suitable for various scaled objects. The new device combines bug-like mobile functions with scanning and wireless data transmission. Besides, it provides a friendly interface for users.
