App-Powered Scanner Renders Computers Unnecessary [Video]
The INBOX platform can digitize and manage documents via a mobile device
Industrial designer Christoph Ptok collaborated with German creative studio Entwurfreich to create INBOX, a device for digitizing and managing documents without the need for a computer.
INBOX is a scanner, file storage, and document manager in one. The device comes with a mobile app which users can use to browse and organize their digital files.
Users can scan documents in any paper-size. They can simply adjust the paper size setting through a scroll on the side. Digital copies of the documents are saved via an optical character recognition software and kept in a secure server. The digital documents can then be searched and organized using the mobile app.
