A PocketC.H.I.P. and a flatbed scanner walk into the woods…

Armed with only a PocketC.H.I.P. and a flatbed scanner, panicrun ventured into the woods. The resulting images are a thing to behold.

Scanography is the digital art of using a flatbed scanner to create images. Turns out, PocketC.H.I.P. works with these scanners pretty much out of the box. With this knowledge, panicrun‘s venture into the woods resulted in some ethereal scanographs.

Luckily for us, panicrun posted a great walkthrough. No coding or soldering skills required! Just a few simple commands to set up the scanner and to offload your images.
