Ever needed to scan something in a pinch, but didn't want to lug around a 10-pound scanning device to do it with? Australian inventors Phil Bosua, Ben Hillier, and Luke Allen have developed a neat collapsible box to solve that very problem.

According to Scanbox's Kickstarter page, the device comes with a number of features, such as:

- Digitize your receipts - Live projector for presentations - Optimized for face recognition when you scan photos - Scans 3D objects (great for eBay product shots) - Scan a page from a book (remember those!) - Turns your phone into a photocopier

According to the inventor trio, Scanboxes will be available on the market sometime in July/August of this year.
