Business Card Scanner: Rolodex 2.0
October 12th, 2010
A lot of forms and documents have digital equivalents nowadays, but one thing that’s still holding on to its fibrous form is the business card. While I’m sure you feel fancy every time you look at your own card, keeping track of the ones you receive from other people can be a pain. That’s where this neat little gadget comes in. As its name says, the Pitrec business card scanner captures images of business cards or anything else with a similar size and shape. It can store up to 2,000 images, and is equipped with OCR software that can recognize both English and Japanese characters.
You can also enter tags to make searching for info a lot easier. The scanner has a built-in 2GB micro SD card, but I’m not sure if you can take it out or replace it. You can order the Pitrec business card scanner at Japan Trend Shop for $412 (USD). If you can’t stomach the price, you can always take pictures of cards using your phone. But that’s not as savvy isn’t it?
