The $160 pen-sized ScanStik just announced by PlanOn System Solutions is a compact portable color scanner for mobile professionals and students.

Unlike other pen-sized scanners, which only scan a line at a time, ScanStik scans the whole page in one sweep, like a flat-bed scanner, in just four seconds, the company says.

It has a MicroSD memory slot, 24-bit/600 dpi resolution, rechargeable battery, USB connector for charging/uploading images to a computer, and bundled OCR and image software.
