Design to Innovation (DTOI) Introduces World's First Wireless Scanner Mouse

Zcan Wireless Scanner Mouse Represents New Way of Scanning in a 2-in-1 Portable Device

HONG KONG, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Design to Innovation (#DTOI) today announced it is launching an Indiegogo (#indiegogo) campaign (http://bit.ly/zcan) to help complete the development of Zcan Wireless (#zcanwireless), the world's first wireless scanner mouse.  A scanner integrated into a wireless mouse, Zcan Wireless represents a new and unique way of scanning documents, books, magazines, and more, by allowing users to easily swipe in a zigzag motion across what they want to capture.  Once scanned, users can directly import to Excel and text (instead of PDF - both are editable in Microsoft Office), share to social pages or translate to speech.  The campaign has a funding goal of $30,000USD.

Perfect for immediate document backup with instant scan, the Zcan Wireless Scanner Mouse can scan the portions of the areas users want, meaning they no longer have to scan the entire page like they would with a traditional scanner. Truly designed to reduce people's workloads, Zcan is the perfect wireless productivity tool (why spend time re-typing?) compared to wired versions which may interrupt fluidity of image capture.

Users can scan anything from a receipt (perfect for keeping records for tax audits in a neat way) and business cards to photos and nutritional information printed in a foreign language (which can be instantly translated).  Scanned information becomes searchable, meaning users can get rid of their paper versions and box files with backup copies – users do not have to dig through a ton of paper to find the right one.  And with Wi-Fi, users can even use Zcan on iPad and iPhone!

"Our Wireless Scanner Mouse is about the same size and weight as a regular mouse," said Sam Ng, business development director, DTOI.  "With Zcan, users can now scan what they want while simultaneously using the mouse too.  And, since it is wireless, users can install it on almost any device for use in any location."

Features:

  • Scan to Table - Zcan supports powerful scanning and editing features which can convert an entire table into one single sheet in Excel.
  • Scan to Text - Use Zcan to edit scanned text, which is much faster than typing it entirely from scratch.
  • Scan to Speech - Zcan helps users learn how to pronounce a particular word or intonation.  Users can use Google Translate as an audio book tool, getting it to read aloud articles, books or even a foreign language magazine (after it is scanned).
  • Break Down Language Barrier - Zcan supports over 199 OCR (Optical Character Recognition) languages.  With an Internet connection to Google Translate, drag the scanned words or paragraph into the dialogue box where it is then translated into a different language instantly.
  • Evernote - Zcan helps to track things like notes, letters or any important notices and store them in Evernote with just one click.
  • Photos - Zcan allows users to share any scans with family or friends instantly through Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or email.
  • Specifications – Sensor: Optical sensor 1000cpi / Buttons: 3 + Dedicated Scan / Resolution: Up to 400dpi / Scan size: Up to A3 (Upon memory configuration)/ USB Port: 2.0 / Wireless Scanning: IEEE802.11n, g / Wireless Mouse:  2.4GHz Digital Channel.

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Existing Big Data solutions are mainly focused on the discovery and analysis of data. The solutions are scalable and highly available but tedious when swapping in and swapping out occurs in disarray and thrashing takes place. The resolution for thrashing through machine learning algorithms and support nomenclature is through simple techniques. Organizations that have been collecting large customer data are increasingly seeing the need to use the data for swapping in and out and thrashing occurs ...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
