If you're in an industry that makes frequent use if scanners—or you just love digitizing receipts, contracts and the rest of your bulky paper trail—check out the HoverCam.

Why take up precious desktop space with a giant flatbed scanner when you could upgrade to this small-space one.

Instead of a traditional scanner that takes forever to trace an entire document, the HoverCam hovers above and takes a high-quality snapshot. The best part? You only need a teeny bit of desk space dedicated to it.

The perfect-for-in-home-use X300 is available for $139.99 (with free shipping!) until February 28th. The USB-powered aluminum device features a 2 megapixel, 150 dpi (1600 x 1200 resolution) scanner. Grab one here.

The orientation of this device also means you can flip through pages while you're scanning them—without lifting up a heavy scanner lid. It kind of reminds us of the DIY iPhone Document Scanner:
