ZURICH, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PocketScan has shot way past its initial funding goal on Kickstarter. The tiny wireless scanner with incredible powers allows you to scan anything from small snippets to large posters in just a few seconds. With less than 48 hours to go on its Kickstarter Campaign, PocketScan now aims for a stretch goal with a social impact and wants to bring Text-to-Speech to the masses.
PocketScan was invented by the award winning Swiss high-tech start-up Dacuda. PocketScan received significant attention from backers from all over the world and hit its initial funding goal in less than 10 hours. Now with over 900% over its initial goal, PocketScan is already among the top 0.1% of the most successful Kickstarter projects of all time.
PocketScan is the world's smallest wireless scanner – barely larger than a business card and super light. PocketScan is compact, smart, and incredibly easy to use. It's the perfect companion on-the-go and connects via Bluetooth seamlessly to a PC, Tablet, Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Powered by unique and patented real-time image processing software PocketScan allows to create beautiful scans and turns text and tables magically into editable content.
Beyond its incredible scanning capabilities, PocketScan could be a revolution in the field of assistive technology for visually impaired. In combination with a mobile device such as an iPhone, it can be used to read text in any light condition and to identify colors in a reliable and fast way.
PocketScan is available on Kickstarter until July 16, 2pm CEST.
