This Contraption Will Let Your iPhone Digitise Paper Photos And Negatives

The image quality will not be good compared to a dedicated with a dedicated scanner, but for $US63 I will not expect miracles: this is iPics2Go, a box that will let your iPhone 4/4S digitise paper photos, 35mm negatives and slides.

Manufactured by Ion — the company that makes the arcade gaming peripherals for iPhone and iPad — the box includes the necessary lighting to make the whole thing work, as well as a 3 x 5 and 4 x 6 photo holder, 35mm slide and negative tray and batteries. We haven’t tried it yet, but it may a good fast way to push your old embarrassing photos into Facebook. [iPics2go]
