Highlighted in their ‘Cyberpunk Your Summer‘ post is this gem a project (and code) from user panicrun, turning the PocketC.H.I.P., along with a lightweight scanner, into an ultra-portable battery-powered scanning station. This process, known as scanography, produces flat, native scans of things in their natural habitat – including things that might not be flat, like logs or mushrooms. Nonetheless the results are pretty fantastic, like semi-gothic washed-over paintings – complete with a GitHub repository no less!
Go beyond traditional photography and embrace the strange with PocketC.H.I.P. scanographs. Armed with a PocketC.H.I.P. and a flatbed scanner, you’ll be creating images to make your smartphone photographer friends jealous. Welcome to the scanner PocketC.H.I.P.; a community project kicked off by Pocketeer panicrun while on a walk in the woods outside Berlin. Be sure to share your scanographs with us via Twitter. We’re @nextthingco!
