Turn your iPhone into a Portable Document Scanner
Christopher Masiello: Hi, this is Chris Masiello in VitaminCM.com. Today we're going to learn how to make a portable document scanner that you can use with your iPhone.
Started out by taking the dimensions from the diagram that I drew and transferring them onto a piece of cardboard, I just used a tape measure and a straight edge and a sharpie pen to draw the lines on here. Now, I am going to need to cut off two of these to make the stand band for my scanner. So I am just going to use simple razor knife and a straight edge to cut the lines.
Okay, so let's pop out the middle and this is going to be the base of our stand I need to make another one just like this. Next, I need to cut the two pieces that are going to be the cross bars on the bottom here, so I just drove a one inch section across this, I am going to just double it up on top of itself, and cut and build the one. And I am going to need even smaller part to be the cross bar at the top.
Now I need to cut a half inch groove in two places on each of the cross beams at the bottom, so I have it marked on the top one and I'll hold it and cut them both, so they are perfectly aligned. I need to put the same notch in the top half of the big cross bars, so I'll just copy the notch down.
Now if you're not just don't fit perfectly, you might want to loosen them up a little with the scissor, so I started putting it together just by flipping the cuts into the notches. So once its all done, you just need to drop in a rectangular piece of cardboard to set your documents on and you can take your document place that on, place your phone in take a picture, and there you have it perfectly scanned its to the perfect size and you can just import it into your computer.
The best part is when you are all done using it, its fold up into a couple of pieces of cardboard that you could fit inside of a maneuver folder and its out of your way and reassembled in another couple of seconds when you need it.
