King Jim Co. has turned the bulky scanners from homes and offices into a miniature portable device built into a mouse.

The computer mouse from King Jim Co. has a built in scanner than can scan and send images at 400dpi (dots per inch), which for such a tiny device is quite remarkable. To turn the mouse onto scanner mode, simply hit the button on the left of the mouse and start moving. This is great for frequent travelers who go on multiple business trips and need to copy documents in a hurry. While this mouse isn't wireless, at $150, that's a pretty great deal for a dual function device, especially when it relieves the user of the trouble of finding and paying for copies.
