Automated book scanner

In the last few days, almost every tech-related site/blog featured a post about the BookDrive, a compact, automated book scanner which can flip pages of a book automatically by simply entering the number of pages you want to scan, creating an output in different digital formats.The BookDrive is able to scan up to 500 pages per hour.

Those who cannot afford the $35k required to own this jewel, can always take the DIY way, just like the guy who built an automated book scanner made out of LEGO bricks.
