BlinkScan Scans & Removes Backgrounds Of Multiple Images (So You Don’t Have To)

Most scanners in the market today are expensive, slow and do not produce images in true color. BlinkScan is going to change all that. BlinkScan is a revolutionary device that can take high-resolution image scans of multiple objects without the background in mere seconds.

Every object that is scanned with the device is also automatically aligned and extracted into its own image file, thereby saving you lots of time in photo editing, and in cropping out the background images. Let’s take a look at how it works.

How BlinkScan Works

BlinkScan is a tabletop device that works a bit differently from a conventional scanner. For one thing, it is noticeably faster. It has a monochrome sensor and lights that blink Red, Green and Blue. The sensor will capture a total of 3 images (one of each color) and then combine the 3 into a high-resolution true "full color" image.

Designers would also love the fact that BlinkScan churns out digital images without any background. While most of the time we may need to spend some time cropping out the background, BlinkScan does it for you, with high accuracy.

Another time-saving feature that BlinkScan offers is multiple object scanning. Just place all your items within the frame, and hit the button. BlinkScan has a scan area of 216mm x 297mm, the regular A4 paper size. Images are scanned at a resolution of 300 dpi.

Best of all, BlinkScan can recognize each individual object from that one scan, and save them into separate image files, when they are transferred to your computer.

These individual images are also automatically de-skewed (aligned appropriately, if scanned at a crooked angle), saving you some precious time. And all of this happens at a single press of a button. The scan takes about 3 seconds, and you can get your high-res, true-color photos on your computer in the blink of an eye.


The BlinkScan technology is simple and brilliant and it comes with a basic software that allows for simple photo editing such as rotate, contrast, brightness and hue. It is still a running Kickstarter project, as of this writing, but the early bird prices of $ 599 have been taken up. You can still purchase one for $ 799 with an estimated delivery date being sometime in July 2014.
