LG ElectronicsLG Mouse ScannerThe LSM-100 LG mouse scanner is the worlds’ first scanner mouse. The device has been designed to make your scanning quick , simple and smart. The mouse can even recognise text on a page of a newspaper and allow you to import this text into a Word document to edit.

How does the LG Mouse Scanner work?

The mouse scanner works through the aid of highly sophisticated software, using a vision algorithm to capture the images/text as you scan. Underneath the mouse is a laser to capture the image and a light to illuminate it. To activate the scan feature you click the button on the side of the mouse and it will begin scanning. As soon as you’re finished scanning, click the scan button again. The LG Mouse Scanner will then display on your screen what the device has captured. Once loaded the included software on your computer will allow you to “crop” the image and select whatever portion you want.

On the computer using the mouse, you can rotate this resultant image into any angle you like. To finish click the onscreen tick box to accept the scan and edit. The LG mouse scanner also allows you to import your scan into a Word document. The image can be dragged and dropped in very quickly.

You can then alter the size, change the font, change the colour and edit or add more text if you wish. The LG mouse scanner has simplified scanning to two clicks of a mouse. The portable nature of the mouse means you can document almost anything that’s written on paper or printed.
