Converter takes your old pics and makes them digital

May 29th, 2009 No comments

If you have lots and lots of pictures from the pre-digital age, then you know what a pain it is to try to get them organized.  I have boxes and boxes of pics of my supermodel girlfriends from back in the day when supermodels were just getting started.  I’ve been wanting to scan them in for blackmail…err…I mean archival purposes.  But using a conventional scanner is a royal pain.  Well from those random gadgeteers at Hammacher Schlemmer comes this nifty gadget.


Rather than scanning the picture, the Photograph to Digital Picture Converter (nifty name I know) actually just takes a 5MP picture of your picture.  The snapshot can be as high as 1800dpi in resolution and up to 10bit color.  The digital files transfer over to your XP/Vista PC via USB, where you can tag and label and file them as neat as you please.  Tres cool, tres simple.  Now where did I put those pictures of Cindy before she became famous….??
