Dacuda PocketScan
This wireless scanner — the world’s smallest at 3.75 by 2 by 1 inches — will dazzle you with its functionality. Thanks to its photo-stitching technology, anything you scan instantly appears on your screen, as if you’re painting. It’s brainy, too, recognizing scanned text or tables in virtually any language and transforming the paper versions into content you can edit on screen instantly. A built-in light source means your scans are always bright, crisp and clear. PocketScan effortlessly scans large formats (like artwork) that would never fit in a standard scanner. Compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. $149.

Cheval Blanc Paris Review

Since Cheval Blanc, an extraordinary, newly designed and refurbished 72-room hotel owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey, launched in September 2021, it has been the talk of the town. Le Tout-Paris remarks about its WOW factor … and the hard-to-get reservations for the 30 seats at Plenitude, the intimate, first-floor gastronomic outlet headed by chef Arnaud Donckele, who earned three Michelin stars at Cheval Blanc Saint Tropez. Reservations are also recommended for Limbar, the ground-floor bakery/café/tea shop/bar where we watched Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric preparing desserts and an absolute must-have for dinner at Le Tout-Paris, the 7th-floor, all-day brasserie. This brightly colored space, with its raised seating and Fauve-like floor tiles and the adjacent Milanese restaurant, Langosteria, both have access to terraces facing the Seine River, with amazing views encompassing Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower.
