Gordon wanted to create a special DVD for his wife’s parents 50?th anniversary. Well, taking a conventional USB flatbed scanner with computer to their house several states away was quite an ordeal. You can imagine it yourself – setting it all up on the kitchen table with wires everywhere. Then there was the angst of taking pictures off the wall, photos off of shelves, and other memorabilia to the scanner. Instead, leave those pictures on the wall. With Flip-Pal’s mobility, you take the scanner to the picture rather than taking the picture to the scanner.
