Slit Scanner

Experimenting with an old scanner

The slit scanner

I had an old scanner lying around for a while. I had heard about slit scanners while doing some research for another project, and thought I would have a got at making my own. I like exploring old technology, and seeing how things work.


It ended up being as simple as taking out the main moving part, and making it static. By running items over the lens you can take your own slit scans.
