All in one device performs 3 second scans

The Genesis all-in-one device has been launched today in the UK, and allows printing and 3-second scanning via the Flash Scan technology. Instead of having a traditional scanner the Genesis uses a digital camera sensor to essentially photograph the document or photo.

The image can then be printed direct, without the need for a computer, or transferred to a PC or Mac using wi-fi or a wired connection. The wi-fi can also transfer images to other wireless devices, such as the iPhone or iPad. The Genesis is also an upright device, rather than a more traditional flatbed configuration, making it necessary to clip smaller documents in place. 

There’s also a capacitive touchscreen, much like Apple’s iPhone, and the ability to take a memory card via a built-in card reader or a USB memory device. The Lexmark Genesis is priced at £409.99 RRP, for more information head to
