ScanRobot Automatically Copies One Book at a Time

The German robotics firm Treventus Mechatronics has come up with ScanRobot. True to its name, it can scan an entire book all by itself. It holds the book open at a 60° angle, scans pages, and air jets turn them. The bot works at a pace of 25 ppm and keeps working until the entire book has been digitized. While we realize this is something the average Joe or Jane cannot afford, think how nice it would be to have your entire library at home in one single bot.
