I have a ton of paper pictures, with slides, that I would love to digitized, but it’s not worth paying someone to do it nor buying a device and spending bunch of time to do it myself. But I think if I could make my own device like this one, I would be much more inclined to do it myself just for the cool factor.
Before deciding whether to scan all of my old pictures/negative I need to be realistic with myself and answer the question of who cares? Who I be doing this for myself or would anybody else actually be interested in seeing my old pictures?
Either way, I thought this was a cool project and I wanted to share it with you.
