Exhibitors at CeBIT were today showing off the "world's lightest scanner", as certified by the Guinness Book Of Records.
Canadian-based Planon Systems Solutions is selling the wireless Docupen R700 scanner, which at under 60g is about the weight of a pen. It can scan entire A4 pages at a time at resolutions of either 100dpi or 200dpi in about four seconds.
The scanner charges every time it is connected to a PC.
The packaged software, ScanSoft's PaperPort, can transfer scanned text into editable formats.
It will cost around €170 (£118).
