    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.

    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.

    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. 😆 So, I don’t see the point of a scanner or any ilk, anymore.
