This amazing book scanner flips and reads 250 pages a minute
The BFS-Auto so no ordinary run of the mill scanner. This Japanese robotic device can scan a book at really high speed, 250 pages a minute in fact ad flip the pages to boot.
"BFS-Auto can achieve high-speed and high-definition book digitization at over 250 pages/min using the original media format. This performance is realized by three key points: high-speed fully-automated page flipping, real-time 3D recognition of the flipped pages, and high-accuracy restoration to a flat document image. This system is toward the practical use in 2013."
