‘INBOX’, the collaborative effort among industrial designer christoph ptok and german creative studio entwurfreich is created as an innovative process that digitizes and manages media with an intuitive scanning system, providing a platform for interfacing between the analog and digital world. the device combines a scanner, storage compartment and app-based UI to simplify document management without having to use a computer. a digital copy of the processed documents is saved using text recognition software, which can be later organized via the integrated smartphone app that automatically filters and categorizes information.
