Book Scanning Robot Coming to a Library Near You?

Ever wish you could have digital access to your library? Readers of the future might depend on a new kind of robot.

Next year, BFS-Auto hopes to release a book-scanning robot for “practical use” that can scan 250 pages a minute.

Here’s more from Book Patrol: “Featuring the latest in robotics and 3D technology the BFS-Auto is a lightning fast, hi-definition scanner that just might change the playing field. Developed at the noted Ishikawa Oku Laboratory at the University of Tokyo the BFS-Auto digitally scans books at an amazing rate of 250 pages a minute without modifying the book by cutting! Let’s repeat:  it scans 250 pages a minute in hi-definition without damaging the book. No more hands in the picture, no more fuzzy pages and no more destruction.”
