World's Fastest Book Scanner

Google will eventually facilitate the digitization of all of the books in the world, so, one day, you'll be able to search them on their new book search engine, Google Book Search.

Right now, however, there is a 500-year backlog of books to be scanned at the current technology of 100 pages per hour. But the bar just got raised as Kirtas Technologies recently unveiled its APT BookScan 1200, a machine that can now scan 1,200 pages in one hour and expedites conversion from books to bytes than much faster.

For only $150,000, you get the world's first fully automatic book digitizer with an integrated automatic book turning robot and a 16.6 megapixel camera with 600 dpi resolution for color or black and white images.

Take a look for yourself (Video) at how this awesome machine will save time and get the job of scanning books even sooner.
