Cool Tool: Scan, copy and fax with your camera phone or digital camera Scan, copy and fax with your camera phone or digital camera

This has got to be one of the neatest ideas I have seen in a while and my initial tests show that it works. I grabbed a couple of business cards off my desk and within minutes had 905% of the information into my address book.

Business card scanners have been around for a while, but this service makes it really convenient. If you have a 2 megapixel camera in your cell phone, you can even do it on the road.

Actually, the mobile copy technology and concept you're describing was first pioneered and showcased in 2005 by an innovative European company called Realeyes3D. They have launched a service in the US called qipit (www.qipit.com) during DEMOFall 2006 last september. With qipit you can use your camera phone or digital camera to turn pictures into documents in seconds. You can then easily share the black and white or color clear crisp digital copies with anybody from or store them online in your private, secure document center.

I did try the service and can tell you it works in almost any lighting conditions and delivers very good quality copies, provided you have a decent camera phone (1.3 + Mpixel w/ autofocus)
