Scanmarker Air

Scanmarker Air - The Digital Highlighter that instantly transfers printed text into your Mac, PC or Smartphone

This digital highlighter might be a boon for students but methinks it is a gift to plagiarists.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

I don't know. It seems no different (from a plagiarism perspective) than a "flatbed" scanner. Even a sheet-fed scanner would be faster than this.

This looks to me like a "solution" in need of a problem.

Nah, there will be a way to defeat it.
You ask me what I thought about
Before we were lovers.
The answer is easy.
Before I met you
I didn't have anything to think about.

Probably both. A sharp sword will cut an innocent hand just as fast as a guilty one. :)

I perform 95% - 99% of my research and studying online, now, and when I need a quote I highlight it, copy it, and then paste into OneNote which automatically inserts a link to the source. Pretty cool beans for an old geezer who went to school when the smallest computers were city block building-size and he didn't know what a computer was. :lol: So, I don't see the point of a scanner or any ilk, anymore.
