Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

I'd look for bluetooth input devices. A keyboard, a mouse, or even one of those presentation remotes might work out. Just make sure that your laptop supports bluetooth and that the device you get works with the built-in bluetooth rather than through a USB base antenna.
