Pen Scanner

Pencil+Wacom | Digital drawing

by Ding Zhou | Industrial Design 2006

Pen scanner is designed to scan editable text directly into any computer application. User could edit, read aloud in real-time. slide the handheld scanning pen across a line of printed text and watch it appear instantly on the screen.

During the ideation exploring process,  it’s important to exhaust all the possibilities. Try to add or substraction certain volume of the form is a common way to approach a more dynamic solution. Below is step by step of the ideation sketches and concept iteration. 

This is another acient project. My student and I had to do long distance communication. so luckily, I still have some digital copy of those ideation drawings. Document Every Step of the Way! I can’t emphasize enough.
