Lightbox Archives Old Photos Straight To Smartphone
QromaScan uses a green screen lightbox, a smartphone, and voice recognition to digitize and organize old photos with ease.
The process of scanning old photos is enough to discourage most people from creating or updating a digital photo collection. But now, QromaScan uses a green screen lightbox, voice command coupled with any smartphone to digitize and organize old photos with ease.
Users simply set-up the QromaScan device, connect it to their smartphone and launch the QromaScan app. With the help of voice recognition software the photo date, location, and names are captured by the system creating searchable meta-data. Lastly, the photo is inserted into the QromaScan green screen lightbox and the LED lights ensure perfect exposure and white balance during image capture.
There’s no need for photo cropping or adjustment because QromaScan enables users to position photos in perfect alignment with the smartphone camera. It also allows for the capture of the photo’s reverse side to preserve handwritten notes. Users can then browse and edit scanned photos within the QromaScan app and import them into their camera roll or computer.
QromaScan is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, where pledgers can pre-order the system for $35 dollars. The product is expected to ship in July 2015.
