This ballpoint pen could be the answer to all your scanning prayers, especially if you’re in a job that desperately requires urgent scanning in inconvenient locations. Bonus: it retains its original function as a pen, that of writing. Jot down, scan, repeat. A high-precision auto-focus lens and 5-megapixel sensor built into the pen scan documents as crisp, clear 2048 x 1536 pixel images. This little guy probably does a better job than your bulky printer at home. The pen automatically focuses the image just before the picture is taken, while pressing the shutter button halfway projects a visible red laser frame onto a document, making people wonder whether you’re a secret agent on a mission. It might even score you some dates, provided you introduce yourself with “Doe. John Doe.”
