This is it I suppose click here didn't know you got such a thing to be honest. Theres no reviews and its very cheap so I can't help wondering if its any good.
Sure someone will know.

If you have a Micrtek flat bed scanner you could use this item . It needs to be plugged into the back of a flat bed scanner. I have no personal knowledge of this but did find the on ebay.
click here
It gives some idea of how it works. No data on quality though.
If you want to scan slides and film strips Search ebay for Primefilm and you will have a choice of some of the best.

It looks to be an add on for a particular scanner but the connector looks a bit ancient.
Give this one a miss.
A good quality Epson/Canon scanner with light in the lid is your best route.
