This genial machine enables us to digitalize whole book in less than minute.

Hardware

Manual Scanner

  • 'Standart' Manual scanner is good alternative to lower the cost vastly (but also vastly increase scanning time)
  • Lots of resources on this topic: http://www.diybookscanner.org/
  • Software
      • will be really cool when version 1.0 (with dewarping function) will arive
      • can be used to produce scans in google books quality using simple camera(s)
