Dixau USB Scanner Does More Than OCRDixau put a new spin on an old product. Take our traditional OCR scanner (optical character recognition) and digitally translate any written page into electronic form. Well, what if you’re scanning in a topic you know nothing about? The folks at Dixau developed a method to automatically searches Google or Wikis on text scanned, but not familiar with.
The hand held Dixau USB scanner has the ability to OCR a physical page, then click a button to take a picture of the text and the scanner will display explanations and background information from an auto search function built into the software, right on your screen. No need to type in complicated words into Google, the intellegent software will do the work for you. The hardware, software combination increases productivity and although initially used for Koreans to learn translation, this would also be useful for young children to learn about words and subject matter. The Dixau OCR USB scanner is available for $90. Source: EverythingUSB via OhGizmo.
