Qipit Service Turns Camera Phones Into Scanners


Qipit Makes College Life Easier by Turning Camera Phones into Portable Scanners for Classroom Whiteboards and Notes

Oversleep and miss your 8 a.m. psychology lecture? Copying notes from a classmate is no longer a problem with Qipit, a free, online service that turns handwritten or printed documents into clear, crisp digital copies.

Qipit works with any camera phone or digital camera, and allows users to transform any physical documents – from notes and flyers to classroom whiteboards or magazine articles – into scan-quality copies that users can securely share or conveniently store as digital documents.

“I recognized Qipit’s value for students out of a real-life experience,” said Benoit Bergeret, CEO and president of Qipit, Inc. “My daughter’s friend called in a panic – she had missed class and needed to get a copy of the notes that night. We don’t have a scanner, but I let my daughter use Qipit. At that moment I realized how useful Qipit’s service could be for students to capture and share written notes – without giving up their notebooks!”

Students simply take a photograph of a piece of handwritten or printed information and send the resulting picture to Qipit’s patent pending ink-extraction technology then automatically transforms it into a high contrast, easy-to-read digital copy or “qipit” that can then be stored or shared online.

Unlike a photograph of a document, which appears as a dark, low contrast picture, Qipit’s scan-quality “qipits” are clear ink-on-white digital copies of the original documents. A qipit digital copy can be easily read, printed, faxed or posted on a blog or website. In addition, qipits can be made public and shared via a URL link to the original document – great for collaboration on group projects.

“My friends and I always trade notes – to make sure we didn’t miss anything important for a test or because we totally missed the class,” said Leah Weinstein, a senior at UC San Diego. “Qipit is great for note sharing because it’s a fast and easy way to get the notes to everyone – saving me time so I can focus on other things.”
