IRIScan Mouse Points and Scans Documents to Your Computer

If you need both a mouse and a scanner for documents there’s no need to have two devices now that the IRIScan mouse is available. This mouse controls the cursor on your screen like any other mouse would do and has a special trick that I’ve never seen in another mouse before. This mouse can also scan documents into your computer.


The mouse works in conjunction with software that runs on your computer that features optical character recognition. That software allows you to swipe the mouse back and forth across the document and the text will be captured and put into your computer in editable format.

The software also allows you to randomly swipe around the page or image and it will piece image back together on the computer screen in real-time. That means you don’t have to maintain a strict scan pattern to use the mouse effectively. The mouse is available now for $79.
