Ever been in a bookstore or library doing research and read something you just had to save? I’m sure you’ve taken a quick picture of it with your phone, but a phone camera won’t capture every tiny word in an encyclopedia. In comes the IRIScan Book 2, a portable, cordless scanner you can take with you wherever you go.

Once you scan something, your image will be saved on the scanner’s microSD card that can be then transferred to a computer (via USB as well) for editing in various formats. The IRIScan Book 2 also comes with Readiris Pro 12 software that lets you save your files into editable and searchable PDF documents. This handy device lets you scan in color or in black and white and choose from 600 dpi and 300 dpi scanning resolutions.

The IRIScan Book 2 retails for $99. There is also a more expensive $129 model called the IRISCan Book 2 Executive that includes a rechargeable battery and Bluetooth connectivity.
