Planon will launch at CES the smallest full-page portable color scanner, the DocuPen RC800. This new DocuPen will be the same size as a pen scanning an entire page of text and graphics in just four seconds. It stores up to 100 pages in its two megabytes of flash memory, weighs just two ounces, and is only eight inches long. The RC800 includes a rechargeable feature which allows users to recharge the scanner’s batteries as the DocuPen is downloading scanned information through the USB port. It will also include the ScanSoft PaperPort OCR software.

CES 2006 is an amazing opportunity to not only see the newest, most exciting forthcoming technology and products, but also to meet and mingle with thousands of other influential people as involved in the industry as you can get.
One great tool that’s absolutely thrilling me is MyCES. After my registration went through, I was given my login and password, and allowed to dive in. MyCES lets me select which exhibitors I want to meet, add them to my event planner, book openings at sessions and request meets with people. It shows me the top 10 exhibitors I “need to see,” 10 people I “need to meet,” search terms popular amongst other attendees and a ton more. Remember, there are 2,500 exhibitors and over 130,000 attendees at this event. It’s going to be insane, but I’m sure a great amount of fun.
MyCES also does us the benefit of tracking which booths we’ve visited, based on badge scans. We’ll hopefully be able to cover a lot of ground, so be sure to keep visiting Covering CES for all our latest on the event, starting January 4th.
As the New Year looms upon us, all we can think about is the gadget nirvana that we will be covering in just a few days. The Consumer Electronics Show is the place to be if you are obsessed with gadgets and electronics. Chris and I will be there in full force, bringing you the best of everything that we see, touch, hear, and quite possibly, taste. Vegas, here we come.
