Next Step in Book Scanning!

File this under awesome.

University of Tokyo researchers create fast-flipping book scanner
by Chris Meadows at Teleread

Yes, this scanner can scan a 200 page book in less than a minute. Amazing!

It is scary enough that it’s this fast now but these guys think they can make it faster and small enough to fit in a phone. This is so 007! Scan, James Scan.

Don’t you want one for your library?

Now, just think about photocopiers if we can all just take pictures of text with our phones…. I was talking to someone yesterday who reminded me that I have already ived through the transition from carbon paper, to carbonless forms, to Gestetner and Ditto machines to photocopiers to scanners and fax. Hmmm, change happens.
