Anyone who has ever had to scan a plump book using an ordinary office scanner knows how difficult it is: the device’s cover does not close tightly, which causes black margins in electronic documents, and the quality of text and images is also not ideal — pages are often skewed and form an angle of inclination at the folds of the book. At the same time, the paper edition gets damaged in the form of folding pages at the spine, because of which the book takes on a sloppy “plump” look, and the old edition may even lose valuable pages. There are, of course, professional scanners used by libraries, but cars are indecently expensive. Chinese startup CzurTek decided to take care of ordinary people who want to digitize their home meetings. A created scanner called Czur photographs materials from a distance, proprietary software automatically removes paper irregularities, “smoothes” the curved pages of an opened book, and recognizes text using ABBYY technologies. The device is also suitable for working with office papers. All digitized materials via Wi-Fi are stored in the Czur cloud, which allows you to directly open files from a laptop, tablet or smartphone, of course, if you have access to the Network. When connecting the scanner via a USB port to a PC, the data is stored in the memory of the latter. Scanning the device takes no more than 1 second, and to speed up the process itself, users are invited to additionally purchase a pedal. The cost of the pre-order scanner for Indiegogo is $ 189.
